Professor Silva joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis in July 2012. As a postdoctoral fellow at the Washington University School of Medicine, Professor Silva received the prestigious Burroughs Wellcome Fund Career Award at the Scientific Interface (CASI), which is given to scientists with backgrounds in physics, mathematics, computer science and engineering who want to explore the new frontier of biology.

Professor Silva’s doctoral studies were conducted at WashU, where he developed a new type of multi-scale cardiac action potential models that incorporate detailed descriptions of ion channel molecular motions.
