The Auerbach Lab strives for a scientifically productive environment, through providing an inclusive and collegial environment for people to work together to advance our understanding of neuro-cardiac electrical disturbances. The group works together to mentor younger scientists, teach others new scientific approaches, and promote scientifically sound and reproducible results.

Bedside to Bench to Bedside Research Approach

Multi-System Approach to Understanding and Treating Genetic Ion Channel Diseases: The Auerbach Lab’s “Bedside-to-Bench-to-Bedside” approach to research involves clinical studies of humans with a history of electrical disturbances in the brain (seizures/epilepsy) and heart (arrhythmias). Additionally, we generated a genetic rabbit model of an inherited cardiac arrhythmia disease. It enables us to explore the underlying causes for these abnormalities by performing experiments at the molecular, biochemical, cellular, and whole animal levels.  Each aspect of the research program feeds and motivates the others, creating a productive research cycle.
