Description of CVI Expertise

CVI Program Unit(s):
Cardiovascular Development / Congenital Heart Disease
Myocyte Biology / Heart Failure

CVI Research Description:
My research focuses on the genetic basis and modifiers of congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathy and heart failure. We have ascertained a large cohort of patients with congenital heart defects with particular emphasis on patients with conotruncal or left sided defects. Our goal is to identify genetic alterations conferring a risk for CHD and to correlate these findings with clinical outcome. To this end, we are also performing clinical translational studies.
