In the Cardiac Physiology Laboratory we aim at elucidating the physiological function of membrane embedded and associated proteins, through molecular, biochemical, pharmacological, and electrophysiological investigations.
Our primary research focus is on cardiac electrophysiology and arrhythmias. However, we also have ongoing projects reaching from metabolic diseases to neuronal disorders.
The focus is on revealing novel functional roles of ion channels and receptors localized in cardiac and epithelial tissue as well as in CNS. Our goal is to incorporate in vitro findings into a whole organ context by the use of ex vivo and in vivo animal models.
