The Pediatric Heart Lung Center (PHLC) is a research and clinical care program focused on developing innovative approaches towards the investigation and treatment of severe cardiac and pulmonary disorders in children.
The overall purpose is to establish a multidisciplinary program to stimulate new understanding and novel strategies for the treatment of childhood cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases.
The approach is to foster the integration of basic and clinical sciences, as well as the development of multidisciplinary approaches to these diseases, by integrating key personnel from different Sections within the Department of Pediatrics, including Pulmonology, Cardiology, Neonatology, and Critical Care and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
By supporting programs that link bench research with bedside clinical care and clinical investigation, the PHLC provides an environment that promotes more rapid clinical application of "cutting-edge" technologies.
