He/she will isolate cardiac myocytes from epicardial, midmyocardial and endocardial layers of the ventricles of these animals. He/she will investigate mechanisms underlying cellular excitation-contraction coupling in these myocytes. This will provide my team with critical information that will aid in the rapid development and screening of new pharmacological agents that are designed to improve the blood pumping efficiency of the failing heart.
