Research focus

The Molecular Biology and Genetics laboratory is investigating genetic variants that affect an individual’s susceptibility to the development and progression of coronary heart disease and heart failure.

The laboratory is also investigating how genes influence the underlying pathology of heart failure in human hearts.
