Cardiology, Cardiovascular Surgery and Cardiac Anesthesia Research

Heart Center research advances the fields of pediatric cardiology, cardiovascular surgery, and cardiac anesthesia and helps promote patient care through a range of research projects. Included in this is cardiac imaging research where a team of cardiac imaging experts are investigating next-generation imaging technology, and the Pediatric Cardiac Quality of Life Inventory, a disease-specific health-related quality of life instrument for children and adolescents with congenital or acquired heart disease that is designed to improve patient-centered medical treatment and outcome. The team is also leading innovative stem cell trials to treat congenital heart disease and researching how to personalize brain perfusion during cardiopulmonary bypass. Additional research focuses on heart transplant, perinatal cardiology, fetal cardiology, cardiac critical care, and preventative cardiology.
