PrevisCDr. Michael Previs, CMB Alumnus of Dr. Dwight Matthews Lab (’09), and Assistant Professor of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics at UVM, recently published an article entitled “Myosin-binding protein C corrects an intrinsic inhomogeneity in cardiac excitation-contraction coupling” in Science Advances.

Published along with Molecular Physiology and Biophysics Chair, Dr. David Warshaw and their colleagues, the publication talks about their discovery of how “a tiny piece of the engine known as myosin-binding protein C (cMyBP-C) is key to maintaining [the heart’s] highly precise tuning.” 1

To read more about their article, see Carolyn Shapiro’s piece in the College of Medicine’s recent news.
