Research Description

Dr. Tompkins is a cardiologist who’s research focuses on sex differences in cardiac arrhythmias. For unclear reasons, men and women exhibit very different vulnerabilities to certain types of arrhythmias. As a Ludeman Center researcher, Dr. Tompkins sought to investigate the electrical properties that underlie this gender dimorphism and determine how these properties are influenced by sex hormones.
