Texas Heart Institute enlists Rice faculty to advance pacemaker project

A trio of faculty members at Rice University’s Brown School of Engineering will be part of a push by the Texas Heart Institute (THI) to further the development of their novel leadless, wirelessly powered pacemaker system.


The National Institutes of Health has awarded a prestigious four-year R01 grant for $2.4 million to Dr. Mehdi Razavi, a cardiologist, director of Electrophysiology Clinical Research and Innovations at THI and a frequent collaborator with Rice faculty and students. The grant will be administered by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.
