Meeting Agenda/Notes

We have generated iPSC-CMs from a child with congenital dilated cardiomyopathy and found profound defects in sarcomere structure and mitochondrial structure and function, confirming genetic etiology for this particular condition.

We have applied next gen sequencing technology of the patient and his parents to identify a putative causal gene.
