Washington University in St. Louis


Igor Efimov

Lucy & Stanley Lopata Distinguished Professor of Biomedical Engineering

Prior to joining Washington University in St. Louis in 2004, Professor Efimov was a professor at Case Western Reserve for four years.

Professor Efimov has also held positions at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, the University of Pittsburgh's School of Medicine and the Institute of Biological Physics in Puschino, Russia.

Professor Efimov investigates bioelectric mechanisms of cardiac normal conduction and arrhythmia. Using state of the art biophotonic imaging, he works on development of novel anti-arrhythmia therapies, including low-energy painless defibrillation therapy for atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. Using molecular biology, tissue engineering and multimodal imaging techniques, the Efimov lab works to engineer the pacemaker and conduction system of the heart.
