Investigating familial causes of heart rhythm problems.
The Webster Lab
We investigate familial causes of heart rhythm problems, including problems that cause palpitations (fast heart rates), syncope (passing out), and sudden death. Our mission is to identify families with an inherited risk of rhythm diseases and to improve genetic assessment and clinical care in those families. We focus on participants from age 1 to age 40. In selected subjects, we perform whole genome sequencing. We work with families, cardiologists, and other providers to obtain appropriate clinical and genetic follow-up.
