Here at the Todd and Karen Wanek Family Program for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), we are working on new ways to delay and prevent heart failure for people with congenital heart defects. In order to do that, we are studying regenerative (stem cells) therapies, genetics and imaging techniques along with creating the world's largest biorepository for patients with HLHS and their families.
To better understand the major role that genetics plays in the work we are doing, check out the short video below.
