The cardiac conduction system comprises a network of cells that are responsible for the rhythmic beating of the heart. Abnormalities in the formation or function of this system lead to cardiac rhythm disturbances, many of which may be life-threatening. Dr. Fishman’s laboratory seeks not only to understand the molecular mechanisms regulating the formation and function of the cardiac conduction system, but also to use this information to explore novel therapies for clinically important arrhythmic syndromes.
