Welcome to NOTICE2020

NOTICE2020 is a small-scale symposium on novel optical technology for cardiac electrophysiology and aims to create a synergy between the strongest proponents of optical imaging, microscopy and manipulation technology applied to investigating the heart.

The workshop covers a broad range of topic from studying electrical activity, mechanical function and heart structure from the cellular scale to whole organ level. Topics range from super resolution techniques to coarse-resolution whole heart mapping, from imaging cardiac activity and correlating this activity to underlying structure to manipulating cardiac activity with optogenetics.

NOTICE2020 is the second instalment, after our successful inauguration event NOTICE 2018 in Florence. You can help us make this meeting a success by downloading and distributing this flyer.

Scotland and the EU

Scotland has voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU and remains an open, vibrant and out-ward looking country. While Scottish weather is notoriously unpredictable and we cannot guarantee a dry welcome, it will most certainly be warm.
