MISSION
 

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.

NEWS

imageCBAC members Jianmin Cui, PhD, professor of biomedical engineering, and Mark Zaydman, fifth-year MD/PhD student, and a team of biomedical engineers has discovered that for one important channel in the heart, called KCNQ1, the membrane voltage not only causes the channel to open, but also determines the properties of the electrical signals, acting as both conductor and composer rather than only conductor as previously believed.
