About This Project

Every year, 55,000 deaths in the United States are caused by heart failure. Our lab studies genetic heart defects by reprogramming patient skin cells into stem cells that we then turn into heart cells. These heart cells are used to study each patient's specific genetic disease (focusing on CPVT, which causes arrhythmias and sudden death). With your help, we can move closer to curing our patients and others in danger from a genetic heart defect.
