Research Lab Results for congenital heart disease
Ari Cedars LaboratoryPrincipal Investigator:
Ari Cedars, M.D.
Ari Cedars, M.D., and his team have three primary research goals. First, the Cedars Lab is inte...rested in patient-centered outcomes in congenital heart disease, which they investigate using a digital tracking system to record participants’ symptoms and quality of life. Second, the Cedars Lab investigates outcomes with mechanical circulatory support and transplant in congenital heart disease, with a focus on those with end-stage heart disease and a Fontan circulation. Third, the Cedars Lab is interested in the biological mechanisms underlying circulatory deterioration and end-organ dysfunction in patients with a Fontan circulation. view moreResearch Areas: heart disease, congenital heart disease
Pediatric Proteome CenterPrincipal Investigator:
Allen Everett, M.D.
Allen Everett, M.D., and his colleagues are identifying new biomarkers — measurable, physical s...igns — to help in identifying pediatric heart disease. Everett is the program leader at Johns Hopkins in pediatric biomarker discovery, initially in sickle cell disease and subsequently in other pediatric clinical conditions (birth injury, congenital heart disease repair, ECMO, prematurity and pulmonary hypertension). view moreResearch Areas: pediatric biomarker discovery, heart disease, pediatric cardiology
Shelby Kutty LaboratoryPrincipal Investigator:
Shelby Kutty, M.D., Ph.D., M.S.
Shelby Kutty, M.D., Ph.D., is an authority on cardiovascular imaging, including echocardiograph...y, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography of congenital heart disease. His areas of academic interest have focused on myocardial function assessment, therapeutic ultrasound and cardiovascular outcomes. Kutty’s research includes developing new imaging technology applications such as a smartphone application that uses patients’ echocardiographic images to track their progress. His work gives pediatric cardiologists better ways to predict outcomes in their patients and provide the most effective and appropriate treatments. view moreResearch Areas: pediatric cardiology
