The Dos Santos Arrhythmia Research Endeavor (DARE) is a dedicated research group specializing in veterinary cardiology and arrhythmia research.

Committed to advancing the understanding and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias in animals, DARE conducts rigorous scientific investigations in the field of veterinary cardiology. With a focus on companion animals and their unique cardiovascular physiology, DARE aims to uncover novel insights into the mechanisms underlying arrhythmias and develop innovative diagnostic and therapeutic approaches specific to veterinary patients.

In addition, DARE investigates biomarkers for cardiac diseases and cardiac tumors, aiming to identify reliable indicators that can aid in early detection, prognosis, and treatment response assessment. Through collaboration with veterinary clinicians, scientists, and industry partners, DARE strives to translate research findings into practical applications that can improve the diagnosis, management, and overall cardiac health of animals.

With a multidisciplinary team and access to cutting-edge technologies, DARE is at the forefront of veterinary cardiology research, working towards enhancing the well-being and longevity of our animal companions.
