Terence Prendiville

Consultant Paediatric Cardiologist

Dr Prendiville is a clinical paediatric cardiologist with a collaborative sub-specialty interest in caring for families with Inherited Cardiac Conditions (ICC) in addition to children with congenital heart disease. As part of a multi-disciplinary team, he works with the Sudden Cardiac Death Taskforce of the Irish Heart Foundation and the National Paediatric Mortality Registry to advocate for advances in clinical care, and to understand the rare causes of unexpected death in the young. He participates in combined paediatric and adult ICC clinics with adult colleagues and contribute cases for discussion at our monthly cardiogenetics conference. Dr Prendiville completed a research masters in Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School, studying the role of master cardiac transcription factor regulators in a transgenic murine model utilising rAAV9 viral vectors and stem cell technologies. His current research interests relate to modelling human (patient-specific) cardiac ion channel disease through translational collaboration with the Regenerative Medicine Institute, at NUI Galway. Through shared-care sub-specialty clinics in Dublin, they recruit families affected by conditions such as Long QT syndrome who kindly donate skin biopsy samples. Through a process of re-programming, a patient’s skin cells become beating heart cells (cardiomyocytes) whose properties and function can be safely studied and ‘repaired’ in the lab.

Stem cell modelling of inherited heart rhythm disorders

Patients donate skin biopsy samples that are cultured and ‘re-programmed’ into heart cells via a stem cell intermediate. This allows patient-specific research on the electrical function of a particular person’s heart cell and the potential to study the effects of genetic manipulation of that heart cell. This is accomplished through a process of gene editing, utilising relatively new genome editing technology known as CRISPR/Cas9. The engineered heart cells form a beating mass of cells in a cultured dish that behave very similarly to the heart organ. Electrical activity of this beating mass of cells can be carefully recorded by a multi-electrode array, akin to an electrocardiogram a patient would have done in clinic.
