ResearchDr Grace has a track record of publishing high-quality research and runs a large, productive research group at the University of Cambridge. His work is widely known and respected and he is regularly invited to participate in initiatives both nationally and internationally. The central, simple hypothesis that drives the work of his group is that the determinants for the clinical risk of arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death (SCD) reside within the heart itself and much of this has a genetic basis. The core of the programme is to link the genetic alterations determining SCD to the observed arrhythmogenic phenotypes.
