Researchers in this group use state-of-the-art technologies to study normal and abnormal cardiac and vascular function and development in animal model systems and human subjects. A wide variety of experimental approaches are used to identify molecular signals and cellular processes involved in cardiovascular development and disease.
Through a greater understanding of molecular mechanisms, researchers hope to understand and find ways to treat congenital malformations and cardiovascular disease.
