Jamie Yang

In the Cardiac Systems Simulation Lab, Jamie Yang is evaluating the potential effects of optogenetic stimulation in studying and mitigating engraftment-associated arrhythmias (EAs) using computational modeling. In her project, she will further research the origin of EA development, characterize early EA dynamics, and establish the ideal opsin characteristics for experimental optogenetic suppression of EAs. The long-term goal is to develop a potential solution to engraftment-related arrhythmias that can be explored further in large animals and possibly humans.
