Lucile’s research projects concern the development of the ventricular conduction system to address the question: how does the heart beat in rhythm? We employ genetic tools to perform lineage analysis of the ventricular conduction system and to study the development of the conduction system in embryos with congenital heart diseases. The use of the Cre-Lox system in combination with conditional reporter mice allows us to visualize and trace the conduction system and its progenitors to understand when these cells diverge from the myocardium and what is happening during pathological conditions.
