Applicant’s project summary:
Our project aims to identify genetic causes of the heart muscle condition, dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Currently, more than half of people with DCM undergoing genetic testing do not have a genetic result identified. The projects we are proposing aim to improve the detection and understanding of genetic results for patients.
