PD Dr. Constanze Schmidt is a cardiologist and electrophysiologist at the Department of Cardiology at the University Hospital Heidelberg. She studied medicine and physics. In 2016, she was appointed consultant physician in internal medicine and 2019 in cardiology. She established her own lab investigating atrial arrhythmopathy and cellular electrophysiology. As part of her scientific work, she characterized the pathophysiological role of K2P channels in the human heart, and identified the TASK-1 channel as an important regulator of the atrial action potential in atrial fibrillation and heart failure. Her scientific work was supported by numerous awards and competitive research grants. She received the Liselotte-Becht research award as well as the Oskar-Lapp research award. Since 2018, she is part of the nucleus of the Scientists of Tomorrow of the ESC.
