Research

Our cardiothoracic practitioners are not only exceptional surgeons, but they are also experienced and passionate scholars and researchers who help to shape the future of their specialty.

Currently, they are examining ways to decrease heart attacks by increasing blood flow to areas affected by clogged arteries. They are also working on an exciting new project in collaboration with Jackson Labs where they are proactively sequencing the genomes of children who have a parent that was treated for an aortic aneurysm at UConn Health as there is some evidence that this condition is hereditary.
