The heart to the right rhythm


About the research

Not every heart beats to the right rhythm. Cardiac arrhythmias are dangerous and can even lead to death. That's why Frone Vandewiele at the KU Leuven focuses her research on these cardiac malfunctions. In this way, she hopes to be able to develop better treatments to get patients’ hearts beating to the right rhythm again.
