Abstract

In our lifetimes, we have witnessed dramatic developments and enormous growth in cardiac EP powered by giants working in institutions that have trained generations of leaders, by scientific discoveries and even by chance events. Fueling this growth have been many things. And interestingly, those behind some of the most groundbreaking events may not have completely grasped the profundity of their ideas at that moment. Nevertheless, these changes almost surely occurred in a community of colleagues who contributed in their own way, and helped provide a platform in which new thinking emerged.

In “Profiles in EP’” we plan to invite colleagues to share their stories of how their ideas, discoveries, and developments came to be or to share how their institution came to figure so prominently in developing EP. It is the intent of this column to grasp the essence of discovery from leaders in our profession, and inspire the reader. We also plan to profile the many laboratories and people who have contributed to the advancement of our field.
