On Friday 26 June 2015 eleven partners involved in WP1 ‘To identify the major atrial tissue changes in AF, and to link them to major health modifiers causing AF in atrial tissue’ met at the Academy of Medical Sciences in London to discuss the collection and harmonization of atrial tissue banks.
Ulrich Schotten (Maastricht University) opened the meeting at 10:00 and outlined the purpose of the meeting. A detailed discussion took place reviewing the spreadsheet and this was modified when required.
Thereafter the team agreed the analysis required and which organisation would be responsible for the analysis and a timescale was also agreed.
Following this a discussion took place on the ethical requirements required for the tasks involved in this work package.
Ulrich Schotten formally closed the meeting at 14:30 and thanked Barbara Casadei (Oxford University) for hosting the meeting.
