From molecule to bedside,
we study & treat heart rhythm disorders.

  • Cell-Cell Interactions and Gap Junctions in the Heart
  • Optical Mapping of Cardiac Electrical Activity
  • Noninvasive Electrocardiac Imaging of Cardiac Arrhythmias
  • Structure/Function of Cardiac Ion Channels


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.

Our mission is to battle cardiac arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death through scientific discovery and its application in the development of mechanism-based therapy.

Yoram Rudy retires

For biomedical engineer Yoram Rudy, a new chapter awaits It’s no wonder that after such a long, accomplished and productive career, Yoram Rudy is not quite ready to retire from his life’s work. Yes, he stepped down at the end of 2022 from his role as director of the Cardiac Bioelectricity and Arrhythmia Center — which he founded in 2004 — to become emeritus professor, but he sees this next step as yet another opportunity to begin anew. With a life defined by an inquisitiveness that has furthered the field of biomedicine, Rudy has trained and inspired a new generation of bioengineers as they make their own discoveries in service to humanity.
