Project Details


This conference is the seventh organized by the Circulation Council of the
American Heart Association, and the second co-sponsored by the Basic
Science Council. The theme of the present conference is Autonomic
Cardiovascular Control, with sessions designed to cover mechanisms at the
molecular and cellular level as well as experiments in animals and man.
The conference deals with components involving a) the cellular mechanisms
and molecular biology of the calcium channel, b) the cellular and molecular
biology of the beta adrenergic receptor, c) neural recordings in conscious
animals and man, and d) autonomic control of the microcirculation and of
the cerebral circulation. One of the unique aspects of the conference is
that it provides support for young investigators to attend the meeting and
discuss in depth their projects with the senior faculty. While an
important component of the prior meetings of the Council of Circulation
involved the personal interaction among cloistered senior scientists, the
feature of sponsoring junior investigators is new and represents the major
fraction of requested support.
