About the ISACB Webinar Series:

In the spirit of its origins, the ISACB is embarking on a new path to carry out the mission by offering a series of quarterly web-based tutorials that highlight and celebrate the ISACB community’s unique interdisciplinary expertise in cardiovascular biology in the academic, industry and clinical realms. These webinars will fulfill the ISACB mission by sharing advancements in the basic sciences towards understanding cardiovascular disease and highlighting achievements in bringing new diagnostic tools and therapies from the laboratory bench to the patient’s bedside for improved patient care in cardiovascular disease worldwide.

There are four primary goals of the ISACB Webinar Series:

  1. Educate the ISACB community through shared knowledge in cardiovascular biology from basic principles to translational outcomes
  2. Bridge language barriers and technological hurdles across disciplines
  3. Exercise and enhance the collaborative nature of the ISACB and;
  4. Encourage new members to join ISACB and increase interaction among existing members

Webinars will be broadcast live using via the Adobe Connect interactive web-based software platform. Two consecutive 20 minute presentations with live audio and video feed of the speakers will be given, followed by a live, moderated Q&A session and opportunity for additional discussion via a chat tool in the software platform. Webinars will recorded, archived and available for download (pending speaker approval) from the ISACB site and publicized via e-mail flyers and social media networks. Webinars are FREE to all ISACB members and open to non-members for a fee.
