The cardiac arrhythmia research program is engaged in multiple research studies that aim to discover and refine novel device or drug strategies in the treatment of abnormal heart rhythm. This includes investigator initiated studies as well as studies sponsored by NIH. Industry sponsored studies are also chosen with clear relevance to our overall mission.
