CVI Program Unit(s):
Cardiovascular Development / Congenital Heart Disease

CVI Research Description:
I have been studying cerebral blood flows in infants with CHD before heart surgery. I am interested in how altered blood flow patterns relate to documented structural abnormalities of the brain.

Dr. Licht is a pediatric neurologist who is interested in implementing innovative, non-invasive neuro-imaging techniques for clinical use. Current research involves the study of the influence of congenital heart defects on fetal brain development.
