USF Researchers Link Genetics to Heart Failure

Tampa Tribune

A research team led by University of South Florida Dr. Stephen Liggett has uncovered a strong genetic link with the potential to save millions from fatal heart arrhythmias, according to the Tampa Tribune.  The research has the potential to help approximately half of the 5 million in the U.S. diagnosed with heart failure. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
