A centre dedicated to the study of diseases associated with sudden death.
The CGC's research aims to improve knowledge of the associated factors and basic mechanisms that cause cardiovascular disease and sudden death and improve the tools for its diagnostic, prevention, and treatment.
This scientific area is divided into a clinical research area and a basic research area.
CLINICAL RESEARCH: The clinical research program takes advantage of the collaboration of hospitals and health centres to study risk factors, possible treatments, and prevention methods.
BASIC RESEARCH: Studies aimed at better understanding the biological bases of diseases associated with sudden death. The laboratory participates in different projects to understand the physio pathological basis of sudden death in six major aspects: Genetics, epigenetics, histology, electrophysiology, membrane trafficking and proteomics.
Genetic and molecular bases of sudden cardiac death.
