This volume, the result of three days of interactive sessions among
world leaders in the cardiac sciences, summarizes the most
up-to-date information about development and cardiogenesis
signaling in cell-based therapy, as well as developmental aspects
of the formation of the embryonic heart, including the effect of
mechanical load on differentiation.
Other topics covered include: signaling and repair strategies,
cell and gene therapy for the treatment of postmyocardial
infarction, signaling, vascularization methods in engineering
embryonic cardiac tissue, and molecular methods to improve survival
of human embryonic stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes; developmental
and evolutional cardiology; novel strategies for treatment of
atrial fibrillation and channel molecular physiology in remodeling
and hypertrophy; multiscale modeling for metabolism and flows,
including force development, mechanics of cardiac contraction, and
ATP supply and demand aspects; aging, interactions, and
interference aspects include fibroblast-myocyte-capillary
communications, nonuniformities in contraction, calcium channels as
oxygen sensors, and epigenetics of heart failure; and macroscale
phenomena and clinical aspects, including various clinical aspects
of modern cardiology such as navigation methods for cardiac
interventions and control of cardiac function by changes in
