Cardiac Electrophysiology

Cardiac electrophysiology research programs within the Duke Divison of Cardiology include:

Cardiac Electrophysiology and Tissue Engineering

In vitro studies of cardiac arrhythmias and design of electrically safe cell- and tissue-replacement therapies

Electrophysiology and Pharmacology of Excitable Membranes

Investigations of the molecular events that control excitation in cardiac muscle and the mechanisms by which excitation is modified by drugs

Regulation of Cardiac Ion Channels and Arrhythmogenesis

Focusing on intracellular calcium and the feedback mechanism that is of vital importance to normal cardiac function
