Our scientists take treating patients to heart — they are searching for treatments for cardiac disease through genetics and genomics research. Learn more about our cutting-edge scientific research into the genetic mechanisms behind heart disease.
JAX researchers are exploring the genes associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease and seeking new ways to prevent and repair heart damage.
Your family could benefit from cardiovascular genetic testing. Patients who know they have a genetic predisposition to heart disease can take extra precautions. Learn how.
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a serious and often fatal inherited heart condition. JAX scientist and cardiologist Travis Hinson, M.D., wants to find out why this condition takes place, and how we can treat it in the future.
Mutations in our genes can cause life-threatening diseases, and sometimes there is no drug or surgery available for your doctor to prescribe. Enter gene therapy.
