At the Center for Arrhythmia Research, scientists and physicians from a variety of disciplines work together to develop new methods of diagnosing and treating cardiovascular diseases, with the primary goal of preventing premature cardiac death. Already, our scientists have made major advances in understanding the molecular and cellular bases for and the fundamental mechanisms of complex, life-threatening arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death.
Ultimately, we will be an international resource for the study of cardiovascular diseases, including ischemic heart disease, heart failure and sudden cardiac death.
To promote and stimulate interdisciplinary research in the cardiovascular field, with the overall goal of developing new and effective approaches for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the heart and blood vessels and the prevention of premature death.
To foster the education and training of medical, graduate and postdoctoral students in the cardiovascular field.
To encourage interdepartmental cooperation among investigators engaged in research related to the cardiovascular system.
To manage core facilities supporting interdisciplinary research.
