Apr 17, 2017
Whitaker Hall, Room 218
Emilia Entcheva, PhD, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Director, Cardiac Optogenetics and Optical Imaging Laboratory, The George Washington University, will present.
Professor Emilia Entcheva, PhD, is a pioneer in the field of cardiac optogenetics - the genetically mediated light sensitization of heart cells and tissue to allow optical stimulation, imaging and control of their electrical activity. The goal of Prof. Entcheva’s laboratory (the Cardiac Optogenetics & Optical Imaging Laboratory) is to work out the biophysical limits of and develop the technological innovations needed for a fundamentally new highly-parallel framework for all-optical cardiac electrophysiology in vitro and in vivo.
