Predicting whether patients will respond to anti-arrhythmic drug therapies

Mentor: Jonathan Silva, Associate Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering

Lab description: We want to develop precision approaches to arrhythmia therapy by identifying biophysical features of ion channels that predict patient drug response.

Project: We have developed an automated protocol to assess anti-arrhythmic drug response in patients with different genetics. Students involved with this summer project would help with the collection of this data and working on predictive methods to connect it to patient response.
