MOLECULAR GENETICS OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES SECTION - RIYADH

5809

Cardiovascular diseases are the major cause of death in the East and West. Among them, heart failure results from various conditions such as long-standing hypertension, myocardial infarction and cardiomyopathies, and is associated with compromised contractile function. There is a strong need for therapies that can alleviate or reverse the loss of contractile function that characterizes a failing heart. We are investigating the role of specific protein kinases and phosphatase in the cardiovascular system using genetic studies, cellular systems, mouse models of cardiac diseases and studies in human donor hearts.
