At Children's Sibley Heart Center, we’re committed to improving prevention and treatment of disease in children. Our researchers are seeking ways to improve the lives of children born with heart disease, also known as congenital heart disease or CHD, as they reach school age.
We see a large number of patients each year and work closely with nearby prestigious research institutes, including Emory University School of Medicine and Georgia Institute of Technology. Our experience and research partnerships allow us to take a leading role in congenital heart disease research.
The Emory+Children’s Pediatric Research Center, a partnership between Children’s and Emory University, is one of nine core sites in the Pediatric Heart Network (PHN). Created and funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (part of the National Institutes of Health), the PHN is a collaboration of clinical sites and a data coordinating center that conducts research studies in children with heart disease.
