New publications on the protective effects of natriuretic peptide receptor C (NPR-C) in sinoatrial node dysfunction and atrial fibrillation in heart disease now published in JACC: Basic to Translational Science and Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology

New publication in the Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology demonstrates the roles of electrical and structural remodeling in angiotensin II mediated atrial fibrillation.

Congratulations to Hailey Jansen who won the Young Investigators Competition at the recent Heart Rhythm Society Scientific Sessions meeting in Boston (May 9-12).

This year 'The Beat Goes On' gala has raised funds for arrythmia-related research, a high priority area of focus, at the Libin Cardiovascular Institute. See related video here.
