The Heart Center at Lurie Children's has built the first biologic repository of cardiac tissues harvested from children undergoing open heart surgery. Under the direction of physician scientist, Dr. Conrad Epting, current and future investigators can utilize this unique resource to support translational research aimed at improving outcomes for children with congenital heart disease.
