Dr. Jolley's research lab is focused on visualizing and quantifying congenitally abnormal heart structures using 3D imaging with the driving goal of informing surgical and interventional planning in children and adults with congenital heart disease.
Dr. O'Connor investigates the immunological aspects of heart transplantation in children, specifically the impact of anti-HLA antibodies. The presence of these antibodies can complicate or even prevent a transplant from happening; therefore, reducing or eliminating them before transplant is important for a patient to receive a heart that is compatible with his or her immune system.
Dr. Rossano's extensive research experience primarily involves the epidemiology and outcomes of cardiovascular disease in children, and multi-institutional collaborative observational and interventional studies. His particular research interests include evaluating the treatment and outcomes of pediatric cardiomyopathy, heart failure, and transplantation.
Dr. O'Byrne is a pediatric cardiologist with research interests in cardiac disease outcomes, perioperative outcomes, and children with pulmonary hypertension. He combines the use of large observational datasets to study outcomes, practice variation, cost, and the determinants of health-related quality of life in this population.
Dr. Peddy is the Cardiac Center Simulation Director and oversees the multidisciplinary educational curriculum using high fidelity simulation technology to create clinical teaching scenarios in the CICU, CCU, and CPRU. Her clinical responsibility is as a staff cardiac intensivist in the CICU.
Dr. Berg is a resuscitation scientist with extensive clinical and preclinical translational laboratory experience in the areas of cardiac arrest, VF, defibrillation, and personalized physiologic-directed CPR. He has substantial expertise in conducting multicenter observational and interventional trials.
Dr. Sutton is an internationally recognized expert in pediatric cardiac arrest. His career focus is on developing and evaluating novel techniques and devices to improve the care delivered during in-hospital resuscitation attempts.
Dr. Pei's research aims to understand the molecular underpinnings of cardiac remodeling associated with cardiomyopathy and heart failure. He is particularly interested in two areas of cardiac remodeling: metabolic reprogramming, and secretion of heart-derived hormones to communicate with other organs.
Dr. Avitabile works to understand the impact of musculoskeletal deficits on exercise performance in children with complex heart and lung diseases. She also participates in multi-centered clinical trials to advance the care of children with pediatric pulmonary hypertension.
Dr. Glatz is a pediatric interventional cardiologist conducting rigorously designed clinical research. He has formal Masters-level training in study design, epidemiology, and biostatistics. Dr. Glatz has an extensive record of research productivity, including multiple collaborative projects, focused on outcomes research in the content area of pediatric cardiology.
