American Journal of Physiology - Heart and Circulatory Physiology Editors Symposium
Symposium — Tuesday, April 9, 2019 — 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM — Convention Center, Room W308AB
Cardiovascular Section — Chair: Irving H Zucker — Co-Chair: Kristine Y. DeLeon Pennell
Cosponsored by: AJP - Heart and Circulatory Physiology
The American Journal of Physiology-Heart and Circulatory Physiology has been aligned with the Cardiovascular Section of APS for many years. In an effort to continue and strengthen this relationship we showcased the outstanding and relevant research of our Associate and Consulting Editors at the 2018 AJP Editors Symposium. We would like to make this an annual tradition with a secondary goal of focusing on rigor and reproducibility guidelines as encouraged by the journal and the society. For 2019 we propose to highlight the work of 4 of our editors who are leaders in their respective field of cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology. First Dr. Merry L. Lindsey will discuss cardiac extracellular matrix remodeling after myocardial infarction (MI). Dr. Lindsey’s expertise in models of MI and extracellular matrix regulation after cardiac injury will appeal to many cardiovascular investigators. Her presentation will include best practices for creation and evaluation of myocardial function in rodent models. Dr. David Gutterman will discuss the regulation of human arterioles and the reactive oxidant species. This aspect of vascular biology should have wide appeal to cardiovascular and free radical biologists. Our third speaker will be Dr. Mario Delmar, who is a cardiac electrophysiologist that will speak on the localization of sodium channels in myocytes. Cardiac electrophysiologists are a large component of the cardiovascular section of APS and should show a great deal of interest in this presentation. Finally, our last talk will be from Dr. Nancy Kanagy, a vascular biologist working in the area of the role of hydrogen sulfide and hypoxia in vascular regulation. This talk should have wide appeal to investigator working in the hypertension field. This symposium will be chaired by Editor-In-Chief Irv Zucker and a junior investigator, Dr. Kristine Y DeLeon-Pennell from the Medical University of South Carolina. We strongly believe that this symposium will be well attended and highlight the outstanding work published in our journal. All speakers will be encouraged to showcase work published in the journal and focus on some aspect of rigor and reproducibility.
