Study Level

PHD

This track encompasses all the electrical activity of the heart, includes both basic science and clinical components, and spans a spectrum from the molecular to the complete body. Research in this area addresses some of the most basic questions of how cells, organs, and the body function and also seeks to develop methods, interventions, and devices that could have profound impact on diseases of the heart and vasculature. Despite dramatic improvements in clinical detection and care, cardiovascular diseases remain the leading causes of death in developed countries. Research in cardiac electrophysiology makes use of the most advanced technologies in areas such as bioinstrumentation, multichannel signal acquisition and processing, molecular biology, imaging across many modalities, mathematical simulation and modeling, and all aspects of computer technology. As a result of this diversity of biomedical and technical opportunities, students with graduate training in cardiac electrophysiology and biophysics receive a very broad education in both physiology and biomedical technology and will be extremely well equipped for careers in academia and industry. The program makes use of background courses from several departments as well as specialized training in the discipline through both courses and extensive laboratory experiences. Because of the outstanding research emphasis on cardiac electrophysiology at Utah, there also exist rich opportunities for interaction with a wide range of experts in the field as well as involvement in interdisciplinary projects within teams of related researchers and students.
