Welcome to the Ahmad Lab at The University of Iowa.

Our laboratory conducts basic and translational research into inherited cardiovascular disorders

Research Interests Include:

Exploring the basis of inherited cardiovascular disorders through both basic and translational research into the genetic and genomic mechanisms underlying a number of cardiac diseases:

  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  • Dilated cardiomyopathy
  • Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy
  • Glycogen storage cardiomyopathy
  • Inherited arrhythmias
  • Pulmonary hypertension

Our laboratory uses a wide range of techniques in human, mouse and swine genetics and genomics, and fosters crosstalk between clinical studies, human molecular genetic studies, animal modeling, basic cellular and molecular studies, and computational systems biology analyses.
