Ion Channels in Health and Disease provides key insight to allow researchers to generate discoveries across disease states. A single resource that integrates disparate areas of biology and disease ion channel biology, this publication includes cross-referencing for disease, channels, and tissues. Offers a broad view of research of interest to early and experienced researchers across biological and biomedical research.
Geoffrey S. Pitt is the Ida and Theo Rossi Distinguished Professor of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine and the Director of the Cardiovascular Research Institute. His current research investigates the structure, function and regulation ion channels and the disease that occur ("channelopathies") from abnormal ion channel function. His laboratory's use electrophysiology, biochemistry, structural biology, and animal models to discern how channelopathies cause diseases such as cardiac arrhythmias, epilepsy, autism, and ataxias.
