Chugh Lab

The Chugh Laboratory, at the Smidt Heart Institute, focuses on arrhythmia research. We investigate mechanisms of ventricular arrhythmias with a view to improve prediction, prevention and management of sudden cardiac arrest.

The Chugh Laboratory is affiliated with the Smidt Heart Institute and Department of Medicine.

Established in 2002 and currently funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the American Heart Association, this ongoing multidisciplinary study uses a population-based case-control design. The Oregon Sudden Unexpected Death Study (Oregon SUDS) continues to yield information about novel clinical, genetic and biochemical pathways involved in the genesis of ventricular arrhythmias, with the goals of enhancing the methods of preventing and managing sudden cardiac arrest and of advancing the understanding of the mechanisms of pulseless electrical activity and ventricular fibrillation.
