  • Molecular mechanisms involved in the formation of heart tumors, including cardiac myxoma, cardiac sarcomas and others
  • Proteomics and histopathologic risk stratification in cardiac amyloidosis
  • Genetic, proteomic and phenotypic features of cardiomyopathies, including dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy
  • Pathobiology of spontaneous coronary artery disease (SCAD)
  • Genotype-phenotype correlation of inherited forms of aortic diseases such as Marfan syndrome, Loeys-Dietz syndrome and congenitally bicuspid aortic valve
