Presented by the University of Arizona Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine:

TOPIC: “The Role of Myosin-Binding Protein H-Like in Cardiomyopathy and Arrythmia”
SPEAKER: Dave Barefield, PhD | Postdoctoral Fellow, Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine, Evanston, Ill.

12:15 – 1:15 p.m.
Medical Research Building, Room 102

About the Research:
Dr. Barefield is a member of the McNally Laboratory at Northwestern's Feinberg School of Medicine near Chicago. The McNally Lab identifies and studies mechanisms of mutations that cause genetic disease. Mutations in cytoskeletal and sarcomere proteins cause heart failure and muscle weakness. Investigators use novel computational methods to analyze whole genome sequencing from humans to identify novel genes and alleles linked to human disease. They model these mutations in human cells using induced pluripotent stem cell technologies to determine how these mutations act, thus defining gene-gene interactions using genome analysis, genome editing, and quantitative trait locus mapping.
