Averting Deadly Arrhythmias

Arrhythmias linked to sudden cardiac death are very rare, making it difficult to study how they occur—and how they might be prevented. To make it much easier to discover what triggers this deadly disorder Johns Hopkins scientists constructed a powerful new computer model that replicates the biological activity within the heart that precedes sudden cardiac death.

New MINDS for Big Data

Johns Hopkins has launched an interdisciplinary institute aimed at developing the mathematical theories that will hasten the analysis of the massive amounts of data being used to study everything from the inner workings of the human cell to the structure of the universe.
