Your heart skips a beat. It could be love, but it could also be a symptom of atrial fibrillation (AFib), one of the most common heart problems which affects millions of people per year.

AFib increases your risk of stroke, heart attack and other heart problems.

Dr. Alexandre Colas is working in the field of regenerative medicine to repair damaged heart cells. His novel approach could transform the way we treat AFib and help people who have had a heart attack live longer, healthier lives.

Join Dr. Colas and his team to learn more about how, with a little help from science, a broken heart can mend itself.
