Filming for JoVE, the top video science journal
Takahashi Lab filmed the article “Model of Ischemic Heart Disease and Video-Based Comparison of Cardiomyocyte Contraction Using hiPSC-Derived Cardiomyocytes” published in the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE). Ph.D. students of the laboratory mainly contributed to the publication of this paper.
In addition to carefully checking the experimental procedure, the “actresses” and “actors” memorized the lines and performed two rehearsals in advance. Thanks to the preparation, the filming was a lot of fun.
JoVE is the leading peer-reviewed video methods journal. With this journal, reputable researchers including the lab of Dr. Oliver Smithies, a 2007 Nobel laureate, and the Huang lab at Stanford University, published their works.
Each year JoVE publishes about 1,000 new peer reviewed video articles, produced at world leading academic institutions. These video articles increase the productivity of research and education by providing step-by-step visual demonstrations of experimental procedures and concepts.
