Doctor Albano Meli

Laboratory for Cardiovascular Physiology of Montpellier, Montpellier (France)

Area of expertise: Calcium Handling, Excitation-Contraction Coupling, Stem Cells Albano received his PhD in Neurobiology at the Faculty of Pharmacy in Montpellier (France) in 2007. He then worked as a postdoctoral research scientist at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City (USA) for 4 years. He was granted the European Marie-Curie Fellowship (2011) and the European Society of Cardiology grant (2012) to build up a team on human pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes at Masaryk University Faculty of Medicine in Brno (Czech Republic). Albano was recruited as a permanent researcher by the French National Institute for Health and Medical Research (INSERM) in 2014. He has experience in basic cardiac physiology, calcium handling, ion channel biophysics as well as in human pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes to model inherited cardiac arrhythmias.
