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.


In the last 20 years, researchers have discovered a genetic mutation behind the second-leading cause of death in Southeast Asian males under age 40: Brugada Syndrome, which leads to sudden death from abnormal heart rhythm, or arrhythmia.
