The Cardiac Bioelectricity and Arrhythmia Center (CBAC) is an interdisciplinary center whose goals are to study heart rhythms and their disorders (cardiac arrhythmias), and to develop new tools for their diagnosis and treatment in the prevention of disabilities and cardiac death.


Engineers find unexpect result during cardiac research

CBAC members Jonathan Silva, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, Jeanne Nerbonne, Alumni Endowed Professor of Molecular Biology and Pharmacology and director of the Center for Cardiovascular Research at Washington University’s School of Medicine and their collaborators took a closer look at the sodium ion channels responsible for creating the electrical signal that makes the heartbeat.They found that certain sodium subunits attached to the main protein in different places. It was an unexpected result that could lead to better drug delivery and efficacy for patients with heart arrhythmia.
