This volume concentrates on the analysis of the contributions of micro-scale elements on the structure and function of the cardiovascular system through pursuit of the characteristics of the basic elements: cells, organelles, genes, molecules, and ions, as well as the control mechanisms affecting the various interactions and functions. The general goals of this volume are to 1. foster interdisciplinary interaction among leading world scientists and clinical cardiologists in order to identify missing knowledge and catalyze new research ideas; 2. relate basic microscale, molecular, and subcellular phenomena to global clinically manifested cardiac performance; 3. apply conceptual modeling and quantitative analysis to better explore, describe, and understand cardiac physiology; 4. interpret available clinical data and design new revealing experiments; and 5. enhance international cooperation in the search for the secrets of life and their implications in cardiac pathophysiology.
