Research summary

Our laboratory studies the electrophysiology of cardiac muscle and the generation of arrhythmias. Abnormalities in repolarisation, due to disease states or therapeutic drugs, can give rise to arrhythmias. By measuring electrical activity in isolated single cardiac myocytes and in excised perfused intact hearts, we aim to better understand the processes underlying cardiac repolarization and their modulation in disease states. Our projects are currently funded by the British Heart Foundation and Heart Research UK.

Repolarization of the ventricles is associated with the T wave of the electrocardiogram or ECG. The temporal association between repolarization and the T wave in an isolated ...
