Jespersen Group - Cardiac Physiology

In the Cardiac Physiology Laboratory, we aim at elucidating cardiac electrophysiology in health and disease with a specific focus on ion channels and their associated proteins and functions using 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.

We aim to reveal novel functional roles of ion channels and receptors localized in the cardiac tissue, as well as in the pancreas and nervous system. We also aim to reveal and understand how disease states affect the electrophysiological function of the heart and its ion channels. Our goal is to incorporate in vitro findings into a whole organ context through the use of ex vivo and in vivo animal models.

We use electrophysiological, pharmacological and molecular tools to investigate the electrophysiological function of the heart, the mechanisms behind arrhythmia development and delineate potential beneficial effects of novel anti-arrhythmic medication.
