NIH Award Brings Together Pediatric and Adult Heart Disease Research and Training

The National Institutes of Health, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute recently awarded a five-year renewal of a $1.6 million training grant at Nationwide Children's Hospital and The Ohio State University (OSU) to Vidu Garg, MD, director of the Center for Cardiovascular Research at The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's, and Peter Mohler, PhD, director of the Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute at OSU.

The overall goal of this grant is to provide in-depth, interdisciplinary, translational and state-of-the-art research training to clinicians and basic scientists in congenital and acquired heart disease. Investigators at the Center for Cardiovascular Research focus on the continuum of congenital to acquired heart disease, from fetal life to senescence, and compare disease mechanisms and outcomes between these diverse populations.
