Working to better understand and treat cardiac arrhythmias.
What We Do
Abnormal heart rhythms known as cardiac arrhythmias are a major cause of stroke, heart failure, and sudden death. Through the Northwestern University Center for Arrhythmia Research, teams of interdisciplinary clinicians and scientists are working together to discover both the underlying molecular causes of arrhythmias and new standards of care for treatment.
Our goal is to coordinate clinical education efforts in order to provide better care to Northwestern Medicine's 35,000 AFib patients. We also provide fellows in related programs the opportunity to perform AFib-related research.
We provide scientists with a high-quality research environment that helps them reach their research goals: to better estimate and reduce stroke risk and to minimize the burden of AFib through drugs or ablation.
