Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common severe malformation. As improvements in medical and surgical management have led to increased survival, patients with congenital heart disease face additional lifelong health risks. Neurodevelopmental delay or impairment is the most common extracardiac complication of CHD. To better understand the mechanisms of neurodevelopmental risk in patients with CHD, we have recently completed a clinical trial that collected genetic, clinical, and neuropsychological testing data. There are a broad range of potential analyses, and we would design a project together based on your interests.

Available: 01/10/22, Expires: 03/01/24

Nutrition has profound impact on neurodevelopment, but the mechanisms are only partly understood. We are studying the connections between maternal diet, breastmilk contents, infant brain development and child neurodevelopment. There are multiple analyses possible, and we would identify a focus together based on your interests.

Available: 12/02/22, Expires: 12/01/24

The group will focus on how early nutritional status affects neurodevelopment and health of infants with the goal of improving knowledge and personalized care through observational studies. Opportunities include computational projects analyzing brain MRI and machine learning models. Duration may be flexible - we will use a combination of your goals and your availability to craft a project that will result in a research product such as manuscript and/or meeting abstract.

Infant Feeding Ability [login at prompt]
Available: 12/02/22, Expires: 12/01/24

The group will focus on the how infant develop the important skill of oral feeding with the goal of improving diagnosis and personalized care through quantitative EMG assessment of infant feeding, advanced computational analytics, and identifying biomarkers of neonatal outcomes. Opportunities include computational projects, retrospective chart review, and work with patients. Duration may be flexible - we will use a combination of your goals and your availability to craft a project that will result in a research product such as manuscript and/or meeting abstract.

The group will focus on the genetics of congenital heart disease with the goal of improving diagnosis and personalized care through gene discovery, functional analysis of patient variants, and identifying biomarkers of neonatal outcomes. Opportunities include computational biology projects, cell culture projects, and work with patient samples. Duration may be flexible - we will use a combination of your goals and your availability to craft a project that will result in a research product such as manuscript and/or meeting abstract.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
