The Established Investigator Award supports researchers with established records of accomplishments who have shown a commitment to research that supports the American Heart Association’s mission. The five-year $400,000 award will support his work into precision medicine for patients with irregular heartbeat, or arrhythmia.

Silva, the Dennis & Barbara Kessler Career Development Associate Professor, uses computational and biological approaches to find personalized treatments for patients with arrhythmia.

His group also developed software to provide a holographic display to physicians who perform interventional catheter ablation procedures to treat arrhythmia.
