The  second  “Channels  Symposium”  titled “Of Benches and Beds” was held from 22nd to 23rd September 2017 at the new cardiac research building (Herzforschungszentrum) in Göttingen, Germany.
The meeting organized by the German Cardiac Society (DGK) Working Group on Cellular Electrophysiology (AG18) brought together renowned researchers, outstanding MDs and young scientists, including the Scientists of Tomorrow (SoT) of the European Society of Cardiology, to promote fruitful interactions and stimulating discussions.

Many contributions focused on mechanisms of arrhythmia and atrial fibrillation.

CATCH ME partners Barbara Casadei (Oxford, UK), Stéphane Hatem (Paris, France), Ulrich Schotten (Maastricht, Netherlands) and Reza Wakili (Munich/Essen, Germany) presented their work in the Atrial Fibrillation Session chaired by Frank Heinzel (Berlin, Germany) and Ursula Ravens (Freiburg, Germany) on Saturday morning.

CATCH ME was also represented by Larissa Fabritz (Birmingham, UK) who together with Cristina E. Molina chaired the session "Heart Failure Induced Atrial and Ventricular Remodeling".

These sessions provided a platform to discuss the research done in the CATCH ME consortium in the context of findings by other consortia and international researchers.
