The EUTRAF project is a unique European Network of highly successful investigators who have common interest in the pathophysiology and treatment of AF.

By integrating the mutually complementary strengths and expertise from molecular and cellular electrophysiology to the study of large cohort of patients this network will develop the most modern approaches toward increasing knowledge of the arrhythmogenic substrate, with the ultimate goal of developing novel treatments and diagnostic tools.
