Summary:

Cardiac remodeling in the pediatric heart makes the heart more susceptible to failure and leads to a poor prognosis. Our research program focuses on understanding how ion homeostatic responses can produce disturbances in cardiomyocyte function and contribute to cardiac remodeling. The goals of our research program are to identify novel therapeutic targets that could reverse these changes in order to prevent the heart from progressing to failure. Using our study models, we also take opportunities to investigate approved drugs to look at their applicability to be used to modulate ion homeostasis and reverse cardiac remodeling.
