UK-South Africa IMHOTEP study

The African Cardiomyopathy and Myocarditis Registry Programme, referred to as the IMHOTEP study, is filling the knowledge gap of genetic origins of cardiomyopathy (a common form of heart disease).

The Newton funded international collaboration has brought together researchers from across Africa, the UK, and other countries around the world to investigate the clinical characteristics, genetic causes, prevalence, management and outcome of cardiomyopathy and myocarditis in children and adults.
