Advanced Development in Arrhythmia Mechanisms and Therapy

The laboratory focuses on investigating from a multidisciplinary approach, the mechanisms underlying cardiac arrhythmias that occur in highly prevalent cardiovascular diseases in the general population, as well as in specific subsets at particular risk of sudden cardiac death.

The group of scientists and their collaborators has the primary goal of providing rigorous and detailed understanding of different factors, either at the molecular and cellular level or at the macroscopic and structural level, which are involved in the dynamic behavior of the electrical cardiac activity and may lead to cardiac arrhythmias. Such an endeavor is accomplished by facilitating fluent collaborations between departments, research institutions and universities, and different professional profiles from students to physicians.

All together make it possible to establish solid basis for identifying populations at risk of cardiac arrhythmias, as well as for studying and applying new therapies that aim at controlling and eliminating such a risk.
