Thanks for making the professorship in honour Paul Brunes possible! Your continued support is needed!

The Paul Brunes Professorship, supported by $1.6 million from generous donors to VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation, and $750,000 from Cardiac Services BC, will take a leadership role in heart rhythm research and training to improve treatment of tachycardia (excessive heart rate), fibrillation (uncoordinated contraction of the heart muscles) or sudden cardiac death.

Dr. Krahn's recruitment was made possible because of families like the Brunes Family cared enough to donate. Donors are still being sought to ensure this Professorship and Dr. Krahn are able to continue to improve the heart health of people across British Columbia through treatment, and new research discoveries. Please consider making a gift today.
