Professor Emilia Entcheva, Ph.D. is a pioneer in the field of cardiac optogenetics - the genetically mediated light sensitization of heart cells and tissue to allow optical stimulation, imaging and control of their electrical activity. The goal of Prof. Entcheva’s laboratory (the Cardiac Optogenetics & Optical Imaging Laboratory) is to work out the biophysical limits of and develop the technological innovations needed for a fundamentally new highly-parallel framework for all-optical cardiac electrophysiology in vitro and in vivo.
