Dr. Michael Schaffer's research examines electrophysiology, pediatric nuclear cardiology, pulmonary hypertension, and myocardial development in bronchopulmonary dysplasia.
Dr. Robin Shandas teaches and performs research in cardiovascular bioengineering, with specific focus on diagnostics and imaging in pulmonary hypertension, novel shape memory materials for minimally invasive medical devices, a novel artificial right ventricle for congenital heart disease, and medical ultrasonics.
Dr. Wei Tan’s primary research interests include cardiovascular tissue engineering, vascular cell mechanotransduction, cell-cell signaling studies, cell therapy strategies, and micro and nano-mechanical devices for biological and biomedical devices.
Dr. Uyen T. Truong is specialized in echocardiography and MRI. Her research interests include cardiomechanics in congenital heart disease and implications for outcomes.
Dr. Karrie Villavicencio pursues research in echocardiography, pulmonary hypertension, tissue Doppler and fetal echocardiography.
Dr. Lisa Wise-Faberowski is interested in basic science (in vivo and in vitro) and clinical investigations evaluating the effect of anesthetic agents and oxygen on the developing cyanotic brain.
Dr. Robert Wolfe's research interests are pulmonary hypertension at altitude, pediatric preventative cardiology, pulmonary vascular hypoxic response, altitude effects on systemic blood pressure, exercise physiology (anaerobic threshold), pediatric blood pressure tracking, and altitude-specific systemic blood pressure in a tri-racial pediatric population.
Dr. Elizabeth Yeung’s interests include congenital heart defects in adults, as well as, patients with lipid abnormalities.
Dr. Adel Younoszai’s research interests include digital information technology, Marfan syndrome, the use of Doppler imaging in pediatric cardiography, and fetal cardiac intervention.
