The laboratory of Prof. Silvia Priori is seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated student interested in joining our research team to develop a thesis project. The team of Molecular Cardiology is a young group dedicated to the study of cardiac arrhythmias with a special focus on developing gene therapy strategies for the treatment of inherited cardiac diseases that lead to sudden cardiac death. We study cardiac electrical properties in knock in mice that recapitulate the disease phenotype similar to the one observed in humans. We use state of the art technology to assess calcium imaging in healthy and diseased cells. We also use tissue samples from patients and controls to obtain induced pluripotent stem cells-derived myocytes a d super resolution microscopy imaging to dissect protein abnormalities at nanoscopic level in human myocytes.
