  • Smyth Lab

Alec Carlson conducts research with James Smyth, Ph.D. The lab seeks to further understanding of cardiac pathologies presenting in mice with specific mutated Cx43 phosphorylation sites. Using surface EKG's, the lab is able to measure each phenotype's cardiac response to external stressors and compare the arrhythmogenic nature of each.
