Characterization of fibrosis and its functional role in atrial fibrillation

In this research project, key features of 3D tissue architecture will be characterised in the normal atria and in atria with interstitial and patchy fibrosis due to permanent atrial fibrillation and heart failure. Image-based modelling will then be used to investigate how structural remodelling and fibrosis contribute to altered impulse propagation in atrial fibrillation.
