The Cardiac Safety Steering Team is proud to present the second webinar series featuring Early Career Seminar Series Awardees.  This competitive award is given to postdoctoral or early career scientists who have compelling research related to cardiovascular safety and risk assessment.

Three awardees were selected for this inaugural Seminar Series:

  • Dr. Julia Hotek, Merck (11 February, 2022)
  • Dr. Arvin Soepriatna, Brown University
  • Dr. Shagun Krishna, NTP-NIEHS

Please join us for our second webinar on April 8th at 10:00 am ET where Arvin Soepriatna will present: Human Atrial Cardiac Microtissues for Chamber-Specific Arrhythmic Risk Assessment

Bio: Arvin Soepriatna is a postdoctoral fellow in the Coulombe Lab for Heart Health and Regeneration at Brown University. He received his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis in 2014 before earning his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Purdue University in 2019. His postdoctoral research employs tissue engineering techniques to study both ventricular and atrial arrhythmias using an in vitro 3D cardiac microtissue platform. He is also investigating how epicardially implanted engineered heart tissues alter the mechanical and electrical properties of repaired infarcts. Arvin has received numerous awards and recognitions for his research, teaching, and mentorship, including most recently a postdoctoral fellowship from the American Heart Association. His long-term career goal is to establish a laboratory that utilizes cutting-edge imaging tools to reveal the complex interplay between mechanical and electrical remodeling driving cardiac disease progression.

Future dates for Dr. Krishna will be announced in the coming weeks.
