Research at the Wan Lab is focused on the vascular and electrophysiological changes that occur in heart failure and in atrial fibrillation. Our lab conducts clinical research with heart failure patients and also uses murine models of heart failure and atrial fibrillation to elucidate ion channel abnormalities in the vasculature and the heart. We are developing innovative therapies and strategies to treat heart failure and atrial fibrillation.
