Congenital heart defects (CHDs) are the most
common birth defect and present a challenge to health care systems even
in developed countries. Despite a significant effort to identify the
genetic factors that contribute to congenital heart defects in the last
decade, the majority (70-80 percent) of cases of CHD remain unexplained.
Join us on Friday, Feb. 6, as Children's Mercy's Douglas C.Bittel,
Ph.D., presents findings on a new paradigm for understanding the
developmental processes that contribute to congenital cardiac
malformations.
