New model predicts fish population response to dams, other ecological factors
Researchers have developed a model to assess how dams affect the viability of sea-run fish species that need to pass dams as they use both fresh and marine waters during their lifetimes.  View News Article (2015-05-26)

Activity after ICD implantation may predict survival
Patients who had higher activity levels following ICD implantation had better survival, according to research in the Journal of the American Heart Association. The research will be simultaneously presented at the Heart Rhythm Society 2015 Scientific Sessions. View News Article (2015-05-18)
