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.


CBAC member Jonathan Silva, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, will conduct the research with a five-year, $1.9 million grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Specifically, Silva and his team will study how small molecules and proteins interact with ion channels in the heart to cause and prevent arrhythmia, when the heart beats too fast, too slow, or is too unstable.
