We are pleased to jointly present a three part medical education webinar series with the Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes (SADS) Foundation. The series is designed to educate genetic counselors, physicians, and other healthcare providers about the care of families with inherited arrhythmias and implications for genetic testing.
In this third webinar, Silvia Priori, M.D., Ph.D. presents the latest diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT).
Professor Priori is full professor of cardiology at the University of Pavia (Italy), general scientific director of the IRCCS Fondazione Salvatore Maugeri, director of cardiac rehabilitation, and head of the molecular cardiology laboratories at the IRCCS Fondazione Salvatore Maugeri. Professor Priori is also director of the cardiovascular genetics program at the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares Carlos III (CNIC) in Madrid, Spain.
Professor Priori's research laboratories have helped to define the fundamental mechanisms of arrhythmogenesis and abnormalities of intracellular calcium that cause sudden cardiac death in patients with inherited arrhythmias. More recently, Professor Priori’s research has focused on the development of molecular therapies for inherited arrhythmias.
