Beschreibung: The role of mitochondria in the development and maintenance of atrial arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation (AF) is currently unknown.
Methoden: You will employ state of the art electrophysiological techniques (Patch-Clamp) combined with modern imaging techniques (epifluorescence, FRET, super resolution microscopy) to address this question. You will study freshly isolated human atrial myocytes as well as human cardiomyocytes derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS). The project will involve modern cell culture methods and viral infection. Based on your experiments we aim to identify new mechanism-based drug targets for the treatment of patients with AF.
