Summary:Pediatric heart failure remains a growing burden with limited therapy. We are using explanted failing pediatric hearts to study pediatric heart failure and to better understand why it happens and to discover new treatments. In adults we are studying the impact of gender on iron-overload cardiomyopathy, and cardiotxicity from chemotherapy which is typically used to treat breast cancer in women.
