David Plotnick

After graduating from The George Washington University with a B.S. in Biophysics and working on metabolomics of embryonic development, I joined the MacRae laboratory as a Technical Research Assistant. My work primarily utilizes our optical mapping platform to characterize Zebrafish heart electrophysiology and ion transients. I work in collaboration with other researchers and laboratories to quantify effects of mutants or otherwise diseased hearts. My independent research focuses on mechanical strain and Ventricular Electrical Remodeling.
