Scientific summary

My main scientific interest is focused on cardiac excitation-contraction coupling in both in normal and pathophysiological situation. I have made several contributions to the field by investigating:

-Excitation-contraction coupling in cardiac myocytes focusing on electrophysiology and Ca cycling

-Large animal model

-Modulation of the cardiac calcium current.

-Role of the transverse-tubules in cardiac physiology

-Fish heart as a model of human cardiac physio- and pathophysiology.

-Impact of pollution on cardiac excitation-contraction coupling.
