Ms Carmen Tarifa

Spanish National Centre for Cardiovascular Research, Madrid (Spain)

Dra Carmen Tarifa is a basic science electrophysiologist that developed her PhD degree programme in Medicine with an awarded Predoctoral Research Grant within the National Programme for Training Human Resources by The Autonomous University of Barcelona under the mentorship of Dr Leif Hove-Madsen. During her PhD she has been member of the Rhythm and cardiac contraction regulation emerging group focusing her research on the spatial distribution and remodeling of spontaneous calcium release events as a novel mechanism potentiating their ability to induce spontaneous electrical activity in AF. He is currently a post-doctoral scientist in the Prof Silvia G Priori’s Molecular Cardiology laboratory at the Spanish National Centre for Cardiovascular Research (CNIC) in Madrid where she studies ionic currents associated with inherited arrhythmia syndromes.
