Translational arrhythmology and electrophysiology
We aim to understand processes that lead to cardiac disease due to pathological electrophysiology, especially arrhythmias. We combine laboratory-based studies of animal models with clinical observations and interventions in patients. As part of this strategy, we collaborate closely with other research groups with expertise on basic research methods, clinical electrophysiology, cardiac imaging and cardiogenetics. This provides us the opportunity to understand biological processes involved in pathological electrophysiology on a molecular, cellular, organ and organism level. Our goal is that this insight will lead to improved diagnostics and therapy for patients with cardiac disease.
