A panel of leading scientific experts detail novel techniques and strategies for the cellular and genetic modification of heart function. The highly experienced authors provide step-by-step protocols for vector production and purification, for gene and cell delivery techniques, and for physiological assessment in vivo and in vitro. Timely, authoritative, and state-of-the-art, Cardiac Cell and Gene Transfer: Principles, Protocols, and Applications constitutes an invaluable guide to all the new cellular and gene-based technologies needed by basic and clinical investigators working to illuminate today's unanswered questions about heart disease and ultimately to improve the heart performance in all their patients.

Editorial Reviews

"The book is surprisingly is quite unique, as there is no similar compendium of detailed protocols. I found the book to be highly readable. It is a particularly useful reference work for cardiovascular scientists who are already using gene transfer approaches in their research. It is also a great starting place for cardiovascular investigators who are just beginning to use these methods in their labs." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
