Focus areas

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) and death from heart failure (HF) remain as the two major challenges in modern cardiology.

However, new treatments now emerging offer hope in combating these events: triggers for rhythm disturbances in the heart can be destroyed by heat via ablation therapy, and pacemakers and defibrillators can be implanted to break up deadly fibrillation or ameliorate heart dysfunction.

As current diagnostic tools for risk stratification of fatal events are clinically insufficient, the problem facing clinicians is to know when to apply these advanced treatments.

The goal of Centre for Cardiological Innovation (CCI) is to produce commercially and clinically driven advances in cardiac diagnostics and applications to solve this problem.
