Dr. El Refaey’s research focuses on cardiovascular physiology and molecular mechanisms underlying heart rhythm regulation. My research pursues new strategies to target arrhythmogenesis, specifically new roles and mechanisms underlying ion channel-membrane protein regulation in heart rhythm that will ultimately lead to new diagnostics and novel therapies for human arrhythmias. My team utilizes a combination of approaches, including molecular, biochemical, imaging and surgical to study mechanisms of arrhythmias.
