CiPA Satellite Workshop
As a satellite meeting to the main Cardiac Physiome conference, there will be a day of presentations and discussions on the physiome modelling aspects of the CiPA initiative. At this workshop we will hear from the FDA team about the modelling efforts underway as part of CiPA, discuss challenges, and hopefully form new collaborations to tackle them.
Introduction to CiPA
CiPA (Comprehensive In-vivtro Pro-arrhythmia Assay) is an international initiative, launched in 2013 by the US Food and Drug Administration, other drug regulatory agencies, industry and academic collaborators, to develop and validate a new mechanistic, in vitro and in silico paradigm for evaluating the proarrhythmic risk of new drugs. CiPA studies include ion channel effects in cell lines combined with mathematical action potential modelling to predict the effect of multiple ion channel block and associated pro-arrhythmic risk, and to check the integrated effect with stem-cell derived cardiomyocyte measurements. The CiPA project website is http://cipaproject.org/ .
Submit your abstract
A number of ten-minute slots are being reserved for late-breaking abstracts and anyone that would like to raise relevant issues for discussion. We are accepting abstracts for these slots, and the organising committee will select a number to present on the day. Please register your interest for this by emailing a short abstract to Gary Mirams by 30th September 2017.
