Fully Implantable Battery-Free Pacemakers for Optoelectric Stimulation of the Rodent Heart – Rose Yin

Rapid pacing has induced heart failure in large mammals. Rodents are a more versatile, affordable model to investigate heart failure across a range of genotypes and phenotypes and as a platform for exploration of new electrotherapy strategies. In collaboration with the John Rogers Lab, we are developing miniaturized tools for chronic pacing in small animals with both optical and electrical pacing capabilities.
