Research funding includes four major program grants and 14 individual grants from the National Institutes of Health. Additionally, our work is funded by many other national and international sources, including substantial grants from:
Faculty members are actively involved in training future clinical and basic researchers. Our laboratories offer MD and PhD fellows a rich research experience that is often translated directly into the clinic. Our fellows’ and students’ efforts have been recognized nationally; they have successfully applied for and been awarded 17 individual grants to support their basic and translational research efforts.
Our wide-ranging basic research is directed toward critical problems in pediatric cardiology:
