Will engineers cure congenital heart disease?

Project: Tec Talk

Topics: Bioinformatics, Biomechanics, Bioengineering, Implants, Microbiology

Congenital heart defects, present in about 1% of live newborns, are structural in nature and arise from errors in cardiac formation. There is mounting evidence that these defects are not entirely the result of mistakes in genetic coding or sig - naling, but are also influenced both at the micro- (cellular) as well as macro- (whole organ) scales by the fluid dynamics of blood traveling through the heart. Thus, there is an opportunity for engineers to contribute to our knowledge and treatment of these defects.
