Research Summary:

Developmental biology and electrophysiology of cardiac stem cells

My laboratory studies cardiovascular electrophysiology and arrhythmia mechanisms.  Our work utilizes embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells as model systems to explore the cell fate decision of cardiac progenitors as they mature into specific sub-types of cardiomyocytes, with a particular focus on cells that comprise the specialized conduction system network.
