#TomorrowsDiscoveries: Therapy for Aortic Aneurysms—Dr. Hal Dietz
#TomorrowsDiscoveries: Johns Hopkins researchers have identified the genes responsible for aortic ballooning and the sequence of events leading to aortic aneurysms. Dr. Hal Dietz currently conducts clinical trials of therapies for people with inherited aortic aneurysms to improve health and quality of life for these patients.
#TomorrowsDiscoveries: Connecting Heart Failure and Arrhythmias—Dr. Mark Anderson
#TomorrowsDiscoveries: Heart failure means that the heart is unable to pump enough blood, while heart arrhythmias occur when the heart’s electrical system is disorganized. Dr. Anderson and his team want to understand why heart failure and heart arrhythmias often happen together—and how both can be better prevented.
