How Can You Help to Unlock the Genetics of Atrial Fibrillation in Non-Caucasians?

Dr. Patrick Ellinor, along with his genetic research group at Harvard Medical School and at the Broad Institute in Boston, has revolutionized what we know about the genetics of afib. StopAfib.org is proud to have helped with this research.
Thus far, most of the data that has been collected has been from individuals of European descent / whites. Now it is time for us to make progress in understanding the genetics of afib in non-Caucasians.
