Markéta Bébarová RG: Excitability and its Disorders

Key Topics:

  • Drug-induced changes of electrophysiological properties of cardiomyocytes – changes in ionic currents and action potential configuration
  • Functional impact of variants in cardiac ionic channel genes associated with inherited arrhythmias (g. long QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome, idiopathic ventricular fibrillation)
