Research Interests
My research interest is to identify targeted therapy specific to children suffering from poor heart function. Currently, treatment of children with heart failure is based on what is done for adult patients. Important differences exist between children and adults with heart failure and our goal is to identify treatment options that are appropriate specifically for children.
Information for Referring Providers
Clinical Interests for Referring Providers: Heart Failure/Cardiomyopathy, Heart Transplantation, Congenital Heart Disease, General Pediatric Cardiology

Research Interest for Referring Providers: My research interests include investigation into the molecular level adaptations that occur in the setting of heart failure in children. Specifically in collaboration with colleagues in adult cardiology we are perfoming investigations of the beta-adrenergic system in children in an effort to identify targeted therapy for children suffering from heart failure. I am also active in pediatric heart transplant clinical research. I am interested in outcomes as well as evaluation and management of rejection and transplant coronary artery disease.
