Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Advancing Translational Research

Ensuring that basic science is translated into clinical practice is essential. While there have been great strides in ensuring that babies born with congenital heart defects (CHD) are identified and repaired, we know that there are lifelong implications for those with CHDs that require continued follow-up and treatment. As the proportion of those with CHDs as adults continues to outpace the pediatric population, we urge NHLBI to look at this area as an opportunity for advancing translational research. It is an area of great need.
