My Biography & Research


Dr. Redington comes to Cincinnati Children’s from The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario. His research interests include ventricular function, integrated physiology of congenital heart disease, and ischemic preconditioning. Dr. Redington has written more than 300 peer-reviewed publications, more than 30 book chapters, and has co-edited seven textbooks. He currently holds over 15 US and international patents.

Working with colleagues throughout the Heart Institute, his plans include building on the remarkable developments achieved in the recent past to establish a world-leading multidisciplinary team providing the highest quality clinical care and practice-changing research for children and adults with congenital heart disease.
