Yoram Rudy organized and chaired a workshop on “Systems Approach to Understanding Electromechanical Activity in the Human Heart” at the NIH-National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (Washington D.C., August 20-21, 2007). Participants included 13 leading scientists in cardiac research. The workshop objectives were to discuss the state-of-the-art and identify challenges of intergrating knowledge from the molecular and cellular scales to the whole-heart level, where cardiac arrhythmias and heart failure occur. The workshop participants developed a list of recommendations for future research directions and NIH-NHLBI support.
