Understanding the disease mechanisms of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

  • Associate Professor, Internal Medicine

Dr. Day is a cardiologist at U-M and her research focuses on hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the most common inherited heart condition which is associated with sudden cardiac death and heart failure. By studying mutations that cause this condition, her work is improving our understanding of disease mechanisms and enabling the development of new therapies targeting the underlying disease process itself.
