Study Summary

The purpose of this study is to understand why certain hearts have ventricular arrhythmias and help identify areas of the heart that cause arrhythmias. There is still a significant gap in understanding why ventricular arrhythmias occur. This study will examine the electrical properties of the heart tissue to understand how these arrhythmias occur, and hopefully identify areas that might lead to ventricular arrhythmias. The hope is that studying this might be able to improve outcomes during ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablations.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
