Cardiovascular Biomechanics and Imaging in Down Syndrome

Shandas, Robin


This supplement expands the training grant in “Cardiovascular Biomechanics and Imaging” at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus to include two additional projects involving Down syndrome. One project will investigate the reasons that infants with Down syndrome have a high rate of heart defects. The other will investigate heart defects and failure in a mouse model of Down syndrome.
