Is this idea a Compelling Question (CQ) or Critical Challenge (CC)? Critical Challenge (CC)

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC

The most promising areas are genotype-deep phenotype studies, advances in cardiac imaging to quantify extracellular volume as a measure of fibrosis; working with industry to develop better VADS/pre-transplant devices for small children, QOL studies in heart transplant children and their families, personalized medicine, pharmacogenomics, RCTs for new heart failure interventions and also cardiac rehabilitation, leverage and expand registries to support RCTs, molecular mechanism studies including studies of restrictive physiology, using genomic findings to directly inform clinical practice.
