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.

Patients with irregular heartbeats, or arrhythmia, have few effective treatment options — available drugs are not always effective, and implanted defibrillators can be too aggressive.

This article features the work of CBAC member Jonathan Silva, PhD, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering.
