Senior Software Developer in the Auckland Bioengineering Institute at the University of Auckland.

Dr. Alan Garny is a Senior Software Developer in the Auckland Bioengineering Institute. He did his DPhil with Prof. Peter Kohl at the University of Oxford, developing computer models of the origin and spread of cardiac excitation. Part of this work involved the development of COR, the first publicly available CellML-based environment. He is now the project manager and lead developer of OpenCOR, another CellML-based environment that relies on COMBINE standards (incl. CellML and SED-ML) to enable reproducible science.

 

Assistant Professor in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics and The School of Biomedical Engineering at Dalhousie University.

Dr. Alex Quinn is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics and The School of Biomedical Engineering at Dalhousie University. He did his postdoctoral training at the University of Oxford and Imperial College London with Prof. Peter Kohl from Oct 2008 - March 2013, investigating mechanisms of mechanically-induced arrhythmias and physiologic and ischemia-related electrophysiological variability. He continues to work in collaboration with the IEKM on various projects, most recently using an optogenetic approach involving cell-specific expression of a genetically-encoded voltage-sensitive fluorescent protein to obtain the first direct proof of in situ electrical coupling between myocytes and non-myocytes in the scar border-zone of healed cryo-ablation sites (published in PNAS). Work in his own lab is focused on the intrinsic regulation of cardiac function and the effects of mechano-electric interactions on heart rhythm.
