Heart’s electrical propagation focus of WashU interdisciplinary study

Posted on July 16, 2020

From the McKelvey School of Engineering News… The heart relies on electrical signals generated by ion channel proteins to tell it when to expand and contract. Genetic mutations in the genes that encode ion channel proteins, as well as changes in the expression of properties of these proteins that alter ion channel function, expose patients to various problems, from an irregular heartbeat to sudden cardiac death. An interdisciplinary team from Washington University in St. Louis … Read More Read More
