Genomics and Transcriptomics of Cardiomyopathies

Inherited heart muscle disease including the cardiomyopathies are common worldwide but remain neglected particularly in low and middle income countries.

Researchers at the Magdi Yacoub Institute collaborate with clinicians in different hospitals and research institutes around the world in studying the genes responsible and their mode of action. From this understanding, strategies are developed to prevent and treat such conditions in a patient-specific manner.

Defining the genetic basis of cardiomyopathies will improve diagnostic interpretation, risk stratification and facilitate more effective treatment strategies.
