CVI Research Description:
My research focuses on the genetic basis and modifiers of congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathy and heart failure. We have ascertained a large cohort of patients with congenital heart defects with particular emphasis on patients with conotruncal or left sided defects. Our goal is to identify genetic alterations conferring a risk for CHD and to correlate these findings with clinical outcome. To this end, we are also performing clinical translational studies.
Dr. Goldmuntz studies the genetic basis of congenital heart disease and genetic variants that contribute to the risk of disease and clinical outcome.
