The Windland Smith Rice Sudden Death Genomics Laboratory at Mayo Clinic is dedicated to the discovery of novel disease-causing genes and the elucidation of genotype-phenotype relationships. Led by Dr. Ackerman, the lab is researching long QT syndrome, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, sudden unexplained death and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Mayo Clinic offers appointments in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota and at Mayo Clinic Health Systems locations.
The Sudden Death Genomics Laboratory conducts clinical translational research efforts to identify people at greatest risk of sudden death. In addition to gene discovery, the lab focuses on characterization, modeling and development of potential treatments.
