Research projects

My research interest lies in studying the causes of cardiac arrhythmias in patients with heart failure.

Dr. Behfar's lab investigates the differences between hearts with and without a clinical history of ventricular arrhythmias, using metabolomics, proteomics and miRNA profiles to develop regenerative strategies to treat arrhythmias in these patients.

My other project involves the development of a novel cardioplegic solution for the improved functional recovery of hearts for donation after cardiac death.
