Molecular Cardiovascular Biology Research

The Division of Molecular Cardiovascular Biology at Cincinnati Children’s is dedicated to understanding the basic causes of pediatric heart disease. Our team of MDs, MD / PhDs and PhDs investigates the spectrum of cardiovascular disease, and we work closely with divisions throughout Cincinnati Children’s and the University of Cincinnati to approach our research with a comprehensive perspective.

The main focus of our research is directed at normal and abnormal cardiac function and development. Our members have been highly successful in the publication of important work in first-tier journals, procurement of substantial extramural support and becoming recognized authorities in their areas of research. In addition, we work closely with the Division of Pediatric Cardiology to provide a strong research training component for the overall cardiovascular efforts of Cincinnati Children's.
