Patients have the opportunity to be involved in clinical trials and research initiatives that help our understanding of cardiac genetic conditions and how we can improve care. This research often leads to pioneering treatments that are available here before anywhere else.
Our research includes:
- designing and holding clinical trials on new therapies
- understanding how genetic changes lead to specific cardiac conditions and long-term outcomes
- creating multicenter registries, together with colleagues from other centers, to get the best insights into rare genetic diagnoses
- devising management guidelines for many of the different conditions we diagnose and treat
