Goldhaber Lab

Joshua Goldhaber, MD, leads the National Institutes of Health-supported Goldhaber Laboratory that studies the basic science of heart muscle contraction with a special emphasis on understanding how the strength of heart muscle is regulated at the cellular and molecular levels (excitation-contraction coupling). The overarching goal is to find ways to help diseased heart muscle perform beyond expectations.
