CIHD Research Registry

The Johns Hopkins Center for Inherited Heart Disease is dedicated to advancing cardiovascular genetics research as it relates to the health and care of our patients. The first step in getting involved in our research is joining our research registry: “Genetic Investigation of Inherited Cardiac Conditions”. The purpose of this study is to learn more about the genetic causes of heart conditions. We also study which gene(s) cause patients with inherited heart conditions to vary in symptoms, outcomes, and rates of disease progression.

  • Participation includes giving us permission to review your cardiac medical records.  We may invite you to submit a DNA sample. If we do, we will send you a DNA collection kit by mail or collect a sample in clinic. There is no financial compensation for joining the study. 

    When you join we will also ask you if you are interested in being invited to join other studies specific to your condition or genes in the future.

  • Adults and children with an inherited heart condition and their family members.

  • To learn more, please contact us at [email protected] or 410-502-2578.
