    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Lange's laboratory investigates the development and function of heart and skeletal muscles. The research focus is centered on the identification of molecular origins and pathways that lead to the development of cardiomyopathies and muscular dystrophies. We are particularly interested how mutations in sarcomeric and muscle associated proteins lead to the development of these diseases.
