“In Canada, sudden cardiac death is still the number one cause of death — even more so than cancers,” said Dr. Anthony Tang, CEO and Scientific Director at CANet. “This conference will bring our network of over 100 investigators and our partners together for the first time to share ideas, discuss new technological innovations and patient engagement strategies to develop and evaluate new heart rhythm therapies.”
Conference participants will have the opportunity to network with other researchers in a variety of disciplines, interact with CANet government and industry partners and learn more about the robust research funding programs.
This network is a flourishing heart rhythm research community who are making an impact on arrhythmia health in Canada. The network focuses exclusively on heart rhythm health and is geared towards solutions-driven researchers in engineering, social sciences and medicine.
