Personal profile

Research Interests

As a physician and scientist, I am keenly interested in bringing the benefits of research discovery to the practice of medicine. I am a human geneticist and cardiologist. My clinical and research interests are in the genetics of cardiovascular and neuromuscular disorders.

We study genetic mechanisms responsible for inherited human diseases including heart failure, cardiomyopathy, muscular dystrophy, arrhythmias, aortic aneurysms. Working with individuals and families, we are defining the genetic mutations that cause these disorders. By establishing models for these disorders, we can now begin to develop and test new therapies, including genetic correction and gene editing.

I lead the Cardiovascular Genetics program at the Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute. This program provides integrated genetic assessment with clinical cardiovascular care to help better identify disease risk for cardiovascular disorders. We use genetic information for diagnosis and risk reduction to improve health across the lifespan.
