The Cardiac Inherited Disease Group has taken a national and international leadership role in some areas of research linked to cardiac inherited disease and prevention of sudden death. Research studies we have led or collaborated internationally with are listed below, including educational and review articles.
CIDG produces mostly clinically orientated research and the translation of science to clinical practice. Specifically at present our research at the University of Auckland focuses on two areas. One is the development of pluripotential cell lines in long QT syndrome, led by Dr Annika Winbo and Associate Professor Johanna Montgomery and sponsored mainly by the Hugh Green Foundation. The other is an exploration of the psycho-social aspects of living with a cardiac inherited condition, led by Claire O’Donovan and Associate Professor Elizabeth Broadbent.
