Currently, in order to restore the disturbed cardiac rhythm, patients are implanted with a pacemaker with electrodes. The electrodes can become deformed and/or infected and they need to be changed every few years.

The concept of their project is to either make a counterpart of the pacemaker cells that are responsible for the generation of cardiac beats, the scientists explained, or to develop a technology for starting them in a test tube and implanting them back into the patient’s body.
