A novel approach to healing a broken heart

Direct cardiac reprogramming relies on the principles of transdifferentiation to convert specialized cells into new cell types that help repair the heart.

Comprised of highly specialized cells, the adult human heart cannot regenerate. After a cardiac event, scar tissue replaces muscle cells and impairs the heart’s ability to function. Transdifferentiation restores lost cardiac cells by directly converting one cell type into another using defined molecular factors. In this webinar, Haofei Wang will discuss single cell multiomics approaches that extend the possibilities of transdifferentiation and improve direct cardiac reprogramming to heal the damaged heart.

Topics to be covered

  • Understanding direct cardiac reprogramming with multiomic approaches
  • Optimizing direct reprogramming to replenish the damaged heart
