UCAP: Goals


  • Develop chronic large animal models of atrial fibrillation
  • Study the progression and pathophysiology of the disease, using advanced imaging and electrophysiology mapping approaches
  • Develop tests for risk factors for atrial fibrillation including genetic polymorphisms
  • Test novel therapeutic strategies including pharmacological, device based, stem cell and gene therapies

Commercial Opportunities:

  • Fill demand for large animal atrial fibrillation models
  • Develop better imaging and diagnostic modalities
  • Develop new diagnostic tests, molecular or serum chemistry
  • Develop new device or drug therapies
  • Develop stem cell and/or gene therapy treatments
