The Campbell lab at the University of Kentucky is trying to develop new therapies that will help patients who have heart failure.
If you are a patient, or you care about somebody who has heart disease, you can learn more about heart failure at 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 ~2800 samples from more than 180 patients and organ donors.
We are part of the Department of Physiology in the College of Medicine and members of the Center for Muscle Biology.
Please contact us if you have questions. We answer email promptly. You are also welcome to visit us. We are delighted to show you around and explain what we do in more detail.
