Anyone interested in getting to know something about protein mutations in heart cells?

@Cedara

As far as I got it, it's a gene mutation that causes heart rhythm malfunctions in infants.

@patrik Interesting. Does it go away or cause more mess?

@Cedara

In most cases it is fatal for the young child (< 1y). Research is going on to tackle the mutation with medication in way that it can survive to a point in time where a heart transplantation can be successful or is available.

But I can hardly say more about that, because I did not get into further discussion and we lost contact after the conference because I failed to remember contact details of the chair or ask for hers especially...
