Dr. Wang's research centers on the development of innovative approaches to the treatment of arrhythmias, including more effective catheter ablation techniques, more reliable implantable devices, and less invasive treatments. Dr. Wang's clinical research interests include atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, syncope, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Dr. Wang has active collaborations with Bioengineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering Departments at Stanford. Some of the goals of his research program are:

  1. to create a more effective methods of catheter ablation,
  2. to create implantable pacemakers and leads that are more reliable,
  3. to create a combined surgical-catheter approach to ablation,
  4. to create noninvasive methods of ablation,
  5. to make defibrillation painless.
