Common heart ailment target of new WashU Engineering research
"Jonathan Silva, assistant professor of biomedical engineering in the School of Engineering & Applied Science, will conduct the research with a five-year, $1.9 million grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Specifically, Silva and his team will study how small molecules and proteins interact with ion channels in the heart to cause and prevent arrhythmia, when the heart beats too fast, too slow, or is too unstable."
