Pediatric Research Studies

Pediatric Cardiology Research Studies

Inova Children’s Heart Center participates in multi-institutional research. Our heart program is currently involved in research to improve our understanding of the functional genomic abnormalities associated with hereditary arrhythmias such as long QT syndrome, CPVT, ARVD, and Brugada Syndrome. Cardiac conditions in children are unique and show variable degrees of expressivity even within families. We are committed to better understanding these unique genetic and genomic factors within families and applying these innovative discoveries in the care we provide.
