Research Description

Abnormalities of cardiac rhythm are a common and serious public health problem. However, the therapies used to treat arrhythmias are often ineffective, and can sometimes even exacerbate arrhythmias. One line of research in this laboratory is directed at elucidating mechanisms underlying abnormalities of cardiac rhythm and mechanisms underlying variable responses to antiarrhythmic drug treatments. We use iPS cells and genetically modified mice as well as studies in BioVU, Vanderbilt's DNA biobank, to discover new genotype-phenotype relations for drug responses or arrhythmia phenotypes.
