Pressure-Volume Techniques & Analysis Practical Workshop


On February 20th 2019, ADInstruments, in association with The Baker Institute’s Preclinical Cardiology Research Centre (Microsurgery and Imaging), will provide a full-day training course in Pressure-Volume cardiac catheterisation in mouse models. This one-day training course will provide information and guidance with study design considerations, surgery and analysis; as well as live demonstration of procedures in a small group setting.

Gain skills and confidence using the preferred method for cardiac cycle assessment in intact hearts at our Pressure-Volume small animal workshop.

Using Millar MPVS Ultra Pressure-Volume units and catheters for small animals with PowerLab data acquisition systems, you will learn how to record and plot left ventricular pressure and volume signals against each other in real time, generating characteristic pressure-volume (PV) loops. You will also learn how to analyse your data and extract haemodynamic parameters to evaluate the mechanical properties of the heart.

ADInstruments Technical Support and Sales Specialists attending: Rashmi Mohan, Chaitanya Veeranki, Amy Cheah, & Parimal Kacha. ADInstruments application scientists will be joined by Dr. Daniel Donner.

PhD, BBiomedSc and MMedRes, Griffith University | GCResMgt, Southern Cross University

Dr Daniel Donner is a member of Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute’s microsurgery and imagery platform. He has extensive experience in the development and characterisation of novel cardiovascular disease models. Dr Donner graduated from Griffith University (Queensland) with a Bachelor of Biomedical Science (2008) before completing a Masters of Medical Research (2010). In 2011, he was granted an Australian Postgraduate Award to pursue a PhD in cardiovascular research and received an Australian Government scholarship to commence parallel study within the National Commercialisation Training Scheme. Throughout his doctoral studies, his research concentrated on the development of novel models of disease for the evaluation of selective androgen receptor therapies in the treatment of obesity and diabetes.

Before completing his PhD (2015), Dr Donner had also completed a Graduate Certificate in Research Management (2012); and co-authored 9 peer-reviewed publications, a text book chapter, and over 15 abstracts at national and international scientific meetings.

Dr Donner is a senior preclinical microsurgeon and imaging specialist at the Baker Institute in Melbourne where he currently performs surgical and imaging procedures for over 30 collaborative projects across academia and industry.
