The Nerbonne laboratory studies the molecular, cellular and systemic mechanisms involved in the physiological regulation of cardiac and neuronal membrane excitability, how these mechanisms go awry in inherited and acquired disease, and the impact of derangements in membrane excitability on cardiovascular and nervous system functioning.
