Our lab is interested in studying mechanisms of cardiomyopathies (disease of the heart muscle) using molecular and biomechanical approaches. In collaborations with other labs at UW, we are using gene therapy approaches to manipulate the force generation capacity of heart muscle to improve cardiac function. Overall goal of our research program is to have more targeted treatment for patients with cardiomyopathies.
