The goal of our laboratory work is to use genetics to elucidate the molecular basis underlying abnormalities of the heart rhythm and heart function. Much of our recent work has focused atrial fibrillation which is the most common arrhythmia. To identify novel pathways for atrial fibrillation we are using a broad range of techniques including population genetics, electrophysiology, and animal models of arrhythmias.
