The workshop focuses on the assessment of cardiovascular function in mouse models. This is a comprehensive program which includes didactic lectures by leaders in the field of cardiovascular physiology, pharmacology and pathology, followed by four days of hands on workshops. Day 2 will focus on non-invasive high-resolution ultrasound using the Visualsonics Vevo 770 system, whereas day 3 and 4 will cover telemetry (DataSciences International) and catheter-dependent (ADInstruments) approaches to monitoring cardiovascular parameters in vivo. The final day will cover methods for analyzing data collected during the course of the workshop and will include study design and statistical analysis. Surgical and anesthesic techniques will also be taught.
