Day 1 :
Masonic Medical Research Laboratory, USA
Keynote: Molecular genetics discovery and functional genomics in sudden cardiac death syndromes linked with Inherited in arrhythmia in short QT syndrome
Time : 10:15-11:00
Barajas-Martinez H has worked at the Masonic Medical Research Laboratory as an Associate-Professor/Research Scientist for the past 10 years. Throughout his tenure, he has been fully committed to advancing translational research in the field of genetics in cardiac arrhythmias. His role as a Director in our Molecular Genetics Program is to establish new strategies for molecular genetic approaches to identify new genetic markers in inherited sudden cardiac death syndromes. He played a key role in the discovery and characterization of more than 12 new genes related to Brugada, early repolarization syndromes and short and long QT syndromes, which were published in more than 50 top tier scientific journals.
University of Oklahoma, USA
Keynote: Post-GWAS follow-up of candidate genes of diabetic dyslipidemia using NGS and transgenic zebrafish
Time : 11:20-12:05
Dharambir Sanghera’s research specializes in the study of molecular and genetic-disease, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. Using expertise in wide range of molecular and statistical genetics concepts, her laboratory is studying the interplay between environmental and genetic factors involved in complex disease pathogenesis on family- and population-based datasets. The long-term goals of her research are: To identify the underlying molecular mechanisms associated with cardiovascular disorders, to improve the classification of the disease process by identifying genome-wide patterns associated with ethnic variation, and to discover new therapeutic targets which can inform the design of early prevention and treatment therapy among disparate populations.
