Carol Ann Remme studied Medicine at Utrecht University, the Netherlands, and obtained her PhD in 2002 at the University of Amsterdam. Her translational research focuses on cardiac arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death (in particular inherited sodium channelopathies), combining clinical data with functional studies in transgenic models and human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived (iPSC) cardiomyocytes. Basic electrophysiological studies are furthermore aimed at unravelling the complex mechanisms by which defective cardiac sodium channels mediate arrhythmogenesis. Additional research interests include the identification of novel (genetic) determinants and modifiers of cardiac electrophysiology and arrhythmia risk.
Dr Remme is Associate Editor at Physiological Reviews, Cardiovascular Drugs and Therapy, and Frontiers in Cardiac Electrophysiology, Senior Guest Editor at the Journal of the American Heart Association, and Editorial Board member of Cardiovascular Research. She is a Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), Chair of the ESC Working Group on Cardiac Cellular Electrophysiology, and member of the ESC Media Committee.
