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.
This week in the news, summertime lemonade stands and a trip to Disney World have more in common than just the whimsy of childhood: They are just a few of the places where you'll find members of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia community sharing knowledge to improve pediatric research and treatments. Read on to see the different ways we made
This week's In the News highlights remind us of one of our favorite quotes from Helen Keller: "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." Read on to see how researchers from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia are working with different groups who share the same vision and scientific goals to advance pediatric care.
Mayo Clinic’s Todd and Karen Wanek Family Program for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia are collaborating to delay and prevent heart failure for hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a rare and complex form of congenital heart disease in which the left side of a child's heart is severely underdeveloped.
PEDSnet, a patient-centered clinical data research network led by The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, received $8.6 million in funding to continue its discovery and implementation of new ways to provide the best care and outcomes for children.
Jennifer Lynch, a University of Pennsylvania physics graduate student who investigates biomedical optics at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, researched how the timing of surgery influences brain injury in newborns with HLHS.
Conducting a group of dynamic research projects for families affected by hypoplastic left heart syndrome, including research involving the use of autologous stem cells (from the patient’s own body) derived from umbilical cord blood collected at birth.
The purpose of this research study is to learn more about improving the treatment and outcomes for patients who have a diagnosis of a single ventricle, such as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) or similar heart defects.
