CVM Professor Participates On National Committee Evaluating Sodium, Potassium Intake Values

The New Report Introduces A New Category For Sodium Based On Chronic Disease Risk Reduction   Weihsueh Chiu, a professor in the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences’ (CVM) Department of Veterinary Integrative Biosciences (VIBS), was part of a National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine committee that reviewed current evidence and […]

CVM’s Chiu Creates Cardiac Model for Testing Drugs’ Effect on Long QT Syndrome

In a well plate, roughly the size of an iPhone, 5,000 heart cells beat in synchrony. These cells have an important role—their response to different medical drugs is helping researchers like Texas A&M’s Dr. Weihsueh Chiu predict how those drugs and environmental chemicals could cause or exacerbate a heart rhythm condition called long QT syndrome. […]
