Associate Professor Lisa Heather, British Heart Foundation Fellow, will explore the heart’s energy requirements and the fine balance between free fatty acid (FFA) delivery and utilisation for optimal cardiac function. The heart’s requirement for ATP (the energy currency) to support contractile functions cannot be underestimated. Energy availability (supply) and workload (demand) are in continual flux, resulting in large fluctuations in physiological demands.
- Date and time Wed 14 Apr 2021 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm
- Location Online
- Organised by Lipids, Metabolism and Vascular Risk
This webinar will illustrate the utility of untargeted and targeted lipidomics to identify dysregulated fatty acid metabolism in and beyond the mitochondria and new signatures of diseases.
Dr Matthieu Ruiz, Associate Professor, Université de Montréal, Department of nutrition, Co-director-Metabolomics Platform, Montreal Heart Institute, Canada, will provide an insightful lecture, followed by a Q&A session.
This webinar will cover:
- New knowledge related to the application of lipidomics in heart failure
- The implication of acylcarnitines to reflect mitochondrial fatty acid utilization/oxidation disturbances
- The clinical significance of disturbances in fatty acid metabolism-related to heart failure
