In recent years, there has been rapid growth in understanding the genetic basis for a wide variety of cardiovascular disorders. Brigham and Women’s Heart and Vascular Genetics Program is on the forefront of research into the molecular basis for genetic cardiac disease and is applying that knowledge to the clinical setting, enhancing the care of patients and their families.
The Heart and Vascular Genetics Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital is composed of a multidisciplinary team of nationally recognized physicians and scientists who work together to take the latest discoveries in research on inherited cardiac disease and apply them directly to the patient.
Research for the Heart and Vascular Genetics Program focuses on the origins of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and the molecular basis of inherited cardiac disorders.
