New human heart model set to boost future cardiac research and therapies


Dr Jakub Tomek from the Department of Physiology, Anatomy & Genetics, and Professor Blanca Rodriguez's Computational Cardiovascular Science Team at the Department of Computer Science have developed a new computer model that recreates the electrical activity of the ventricles in a human heart. In doing so, they have uncovered and resolved theoretical inconsistencies that have been present in almost all models of the heart from the last 25 years and created a new human heart model that could enable more basic, translational and clinical research into a range of heart diseases and potentially accelerate the development of new therapies.
