This is what we do
Our lab conducts both basic science and translational studies of heart dysfunction and therapies for heart disease. Currently, the translational research centers on advancements in the clinical therapies of atrial and ventricular ablation, defibrillation, and the risk stratification for arrhythmias using a personalized imaging-based “virtual-heart” simulation approach. The basic science research focuses on understanding the pathological electrophysiological and electromechanical behavior of the heart, with emphasis on the mechanisms for cardiac arrhythmogenesis and pump dysfunction. We are part of the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Alliance for Cardiovascular Diagnostic and Treatment Innovation (ADVANCE).
