Educational Objectives:

At the conclusion of this presentation participants should be able to:

Presentation 1:

1.  Micropeptides are small proteins (~50 amino acids in length) which are encoded by small open reading frames, many of which remain concealed in putatively annotated long noncoding RNAs.

2.  The novel cardiac micropeptide, named KCNEmini, directly regulates the function of voltage-gated potassium channels in the heart, which is important for maintaining normal cardiac rhythm and contractility.

3.  KCNEmini may be a novel candidate gene for human arrhythmias, such as Long QT Syndrome.

Presentation 2:

1.  Understand the impact of antipsychotic medications on metabolic health.

2.  Learn about potential risk factors for diabetes in the above patients.

3.  Learn about promising therapeutic approaches to treat diabetes early in the above patients.
