Computer Simulation Aims to Understand Arrhythmia-Induced Sudden Cardiac Death

Sudden cardiac death resulting from an arrhythmia is a rare and difficult to study disorder. Now researchers at Johns Hopkins University have developed a computer model of the heart specifically mimicking what happens to it prior to and during sudden cardiac death. The biomolecular simulation is already pointing to drug targets that should be looked […]
