Heart defects are the most common birth defects and they contribute to advanced heart failure in children and adults. To better understand the mechanisms of the developing heart, cardiologist Daniel Garry examines—on a molecular level—the development of heart cells. This includes heart stem cells and heart progenitor cells. If successful, his research may contribute to advances and cell therapies for patients with common and deadly congenital heart disease and advanced heart failure.
