New study identifies infiltrating adipose tissue as a driving factor in ventricular arrhythmias

Published by Ryan O'Hara on

A team of computational and clinical researchers, led by first author Eric Sung, PhD, discover in their latest research that fat intermingling with scar tissue is the driving force behind the development of heart rhythm disturbances. This prospective study was completed by two clinical centers, one at Johns Hopkins University led by Dr. Jonathan Chrispin and another at University of Pennsylvania led by Dr. Saman Nazarian.

In addition, a figure from the study was featured on the October 2022 Journal Cover (Vol. 1, Issue 10) by Nature Cardiovascular Research.

The research team features ADVANCE co-director Dr. Natalia Trayanova and ADVANCE clinicians Dr. Jonathan Chrispin and Dr. David Spragg.
