At Children’s Hospital Boston, our care is informed by our research, and our discoveries in the laboratory strengthen the care we provide at each child's bedside. Children’s scientific research program is one of the largest and most active of any pediatric hospital in the world. In particular, our cardiovascular and cardiac surgery researchers are yielding crucial insights into the causes and development of heart disease and disorders; paving ground for the most promising new treatments and interventions; and offering ideas and discoveries that could one day lead to cures.
Among our current research projects with promise for treating cardiomyopathy are:
- Understanding family ties to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
- Reversing heart damage with a simple injection
- Evaluating the effectiveness of medication in delaying hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
