The University of Arizona Health Sciences Career Development Awards program recently selected Tobias as one of its five 2023 recipients.

Our lab will investigate the potential of this circRNA as a signature molecule, or a biomarker, which can be used to help physicians monitor the presence or progression of atrial fibrillation from a single blood sample. This new circRNA-based biomarker may provide us with a non-invasive and efficient way to detect atrial fibrillation early and potentially develop personalized therapies tailored to an individual’s unique genetic profile.
