Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner, and our biweekly installment of In the News is the perfect playing field for us to showcase the wide range of research projects that Children's Hospital of Philadelphia experts tackle. Huddle up!
The Kilbaugh Lab focuses on advanced therapies for treating cardiac arrest, traumatic brain injuries, cardiopulmonary bypass, extracorporeal life support, defense against chemical toxins, and therapeutics for mitochondrial disorders that reduce neurological damage.
The Wilson Lab studies the inherited neuro- and cardio-degenerative mitochondrial disorder, Friedreich ataxia (FA). The lab also constructed the first random shRNA-expressing libraries and is using these libraries for drug discovery in a variety of disorders.
