Science features liquid electrodes

Texas Heart Institute (THI) physician-scientist and innovator, Mehdi Razavi, MD, Director of THI’s Electrophysiology Clinical Research & Innovations and Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, has teamed up with The University of Texas at Austin’s Elizabeth Cosgriff-Hernandez, PhD, Cullen Trust for Higher Education Endowed Professor in Engineering, to push the boundaries of biomedical engineering in the search for new ways to influence the human heartbeat.

Their research is testing the ability of their liquid electrodes to deliver pulses of electricity to the heart. Their work caught the attention of Science writer Robert F. Service at the American Chemical Society meeting in San Diego.

Science illuminates promising scientific concepts beyond the specialty journals and scientific meetings. Their articles highlight the most cutting-edge advances that consistently rank among the world’s most-cited research. Stories always represent novel and broadly important data and the most innovative concepts in scientific circles today.
