Webster Cardiac Genetics Group

What We Do

We investigate familial causes of sudden cardiac death. Our mission is to identify families with an inherited risk of sudden death and to improve clinical and genetic assessment in those families.


We focus on decedents from age 1 to age 40. In selected subjects, we perform whole genome sequencing. We work with medical examiners, coroners and families to obtain appropriate clinical and genetic follow-up.
