Team 3 – Pathophysiology of Cellular Excitability

Team 3 is headed by S. Hatem.

Team 3 focuses its research program on the identification of molecular mechanisms underlying cardiac ion channel trafficking and their role in the pathophysiology of cardiac arrhythmias with a strong emphasis on atrial fibrillation. Using cardiac myocyte electrophysiology, molecular imaging of living cells and experimental models of cardiac diseases, team 3 studies the mechanisms underlying cardiac remodeling, atrial excitability modifications and the substrate of atrial fibrillation.

This team is attached to the “école doctorale” 394 “Physiologie et Physiopathologie”.
