The Campbell lab at the University of Kentucky seeks sarcomere level therapies for heart failure. You can learn more about this medical condition by reading Heart Failure 101.
We use biophysical, biochemical, and computational techniques and we collaborate extensively with cardiothoracic surgeons and cardiologists.
Many of our experiments use tissue samples isolated from patients undergoing heart transplants and other cardiac surgeries. Our cardiac biobank now contains ~2000 samples from more than 120 patients and organ donors.
We are part of the Department of Physiology in the College of Medicine and we are also proud members of the Center for Muscle Biology.
Please browse our site and contact us if we can provide more information. Better yet, come and see us! We are delighted to show you around.
