The Cardiac Electrophysiology Laboratory, led by Dr. Christian Zemlin, focuses on discovering and understanding the mechanisms underlying cardiac arrhythmias and developing new treatments for arrhythmia patiens.

We use advanced imaging methods, such as voltage-sensitve fluorescent probes and high-speed, ultrasensitive cameras to study the electrical activity of animal hearts during arrhythnmias. In computer simulations, we test our understanding and develop strategies for treatments, which we then test in animal hearts. Ultimately, this will lead to the preparation and conduction of clinical trials.
