‘Unexpected role of the cardiac pacemaker channel (HCN4) in early-onset familial atrial fibrillation (a new mechanism in the genesis and maintenance of atrial fibrillation)’

Grants for research teams

Biology and Biomedicine



The results obtained would allow us to identify the mechanism by which HCN4 mutations can cause familial AF and to increase our knowledge into the actual mechanism underlying the initiation/maintenance of the arrhythmia, which eventually would allow us to identify a novel target for its treatment.
