The Cardiothoracic Surgery specialty is part of the Cardiorespiratory Unit, which conducts research into congenital and acquired heart disease as seen from the fetus to the aged.
Our research reflects our mission primarily to treat infants and children with cardiac disease. It is designed to cover all aspects of cardiac disease, expanding beyond the clinical manifestations to encompass the basic science underlying the various malformations, particularly the mechanisms of cardiac development.
The research also includes the long-term follow-up of the children as they grow into adolescents and adults.
Lists of research papers authored by members of the Cardiorespiratory Unit are available as follows:
- 2012 publications
- 2011 publications
- 2010 publications
- 2009 publications
- 2008 publications
