Ron Lacro is trained in dysmorphology/clinical genetics as well as pediatric cardiology. As a result, his research interests lie at the intersection of these two disciplines. He is particularly interested in the pathogenesis of congenital cardiovascular malformations and, clinically, on evaluating the management of patients with multiple malformation syndromes such as Williams snydrome and Marfan syndrome and other connective tissue disorders.
