    Integrative Human Cardiovascular Control

    This course covers important theoretical and practical aspects of methods in integrative human cardiovascular studies. The purpose is to provide the participants with knowledge of advantages and pitfalls of these methods during morning lectures and to demonstrate methods and allow participants hands-on experience during afternoon practical sessions. Complete course program: www.dacra.dk

    Form

    Please see detalis at:

    6-11 May 2012, Rigshospitalet and Panum Institute, 6,8 ECTS : 21 morning lectures. 18 hours of afternoon demonstrations and practical work. 3 workshops. Participant demonstrations. Homework required. Knowledge Review. phdkursus.sund.ku.dk/frontPlanner/DetailKursus.aspx

    Ion Channels Symposium May 2012

    24-25 May, 2012, The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters, 2.2 ECTS

    Keywords/topics covered in the course: Ion channels in arrhythmia; Ion channels in metabolic disease; Calcium channels in health and disease; Posttranslational modifications - emerging novel regulatory pathways of ion channel function.

    Participants are expected to read review articles by the presenting international scientists as preparation to the course. Further, participants are asked to write a report (1-2 pages) in which a detailed account is given for two of the talks given at the course. The report should contain a short summary of the content, an evaluation of the presentation and statement why the talks were chosen for this report.

    Cardiovascular Research Seminars – Spring and Fall 2012

    The Cardiovascular Research Seminars is a course comprising four lectures in the spring and four lectures in autumn semester 2012. The graduate students will be introduced to critical reading of scientific publications, and get insights into current cardiovascular research in internationally renowned laboratories as well as industrial research. Besides this, students will be introduced to the scientific form of meetings with researchers from their own and related fields of research.

    International guest speakers from academia and industry in the fields of cardiovascular research will present recent findings. Cardiovascular Research Seminars focus on important topics in cardiovascular sciences. The main objective of these meetings is to present new front-line research and technologies that have major impact on biological, biomedical and physiological sciences.

    Please see details at:

    The Panum Institute, 1.4 ECTS phdkursus.sund.ku.dk/frontPlanner/DetailKursus.aspx (spring) and phdkursus.sund.ku.dk/frontPlanner/DetailKursus.aspx (autumn).

    Cardiovascular function and dysfunction

    18-21 June 2012, The Victor Albeck Building, Aarhus University, 2,2 ECTS

    The course aims at giving the student a background in normal cardiovascular physiology, biochemistry and pharmacology plus the pathophysiological concepts for the major cardiovascular conditions. The student who has been at the course will have a better chance of picking up information from scientific cardiovascular lectures

    The course will consist of lectures, student presentations and student assignment Please see details at

    Scandinavian Physiological Society's Annual Meeting August 2012

    The abstract submission to the Scandinavian Physiological Society's Annual Meeting in Helsinki is now open:

    mettebie.dk/oulu/submission.html The meeting will be held 24-26 August. Abstract submission deadline is 31 May. There will be 20 symposia from various disciplines of physiology and the special interest groups, including the newly formed Special Interest Group on Cardiac Physiology (http://www.scandphys.org/special-interest-groups/cardiac-physiology/). The programme will soon be available on the meeting website: www.oulu.fi/sps2012/

    PhD course in "Cardiovascular Physiology"

    3-7 September, 2012, Sandbjerg Manor, 4.9 ECTS

    PhD students enter their study with variable knowledge of cardiovascular physiology and it is therefore essential that they are brought to a relatively advanced, common level of understanding that will enable them to critically evaluate the physiological relevance of their project. The ‘
