Cardiac Electrophysiology Research and Training Center (CERT CENTER)

Heart and brain diseases are a major cause of death throughout the world. Therefore, a holistic approach to find the better therapeutic targets as well as the prevention of the complications to the heart and the brain caused by obesity, metabolic syndrome, and aging are crucial at this time. Research in the Cardiac Electrophysiology Research and Training Center, or CERT Center, has evolved quickly to encompass intracellular, cellular, tissue, organ and intact physiological processes involved in the heart and brain pathogenesis due to obesity, metabolic syndrome, and aging. Comprehensive research approach from cell to bedside has been used at CERT Center as the key to answer research questions and to advance our knowledge that benefits patients.
