Pediatric Cardiothoracic Tissue Engineering Laboratory at MIRM

This basic research effort co-directed by Dr. Peter Wearden encompasses a collaborative effort of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine.  The Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery Laboratory of MIRM seeks to apply tissue engineering to pediatric cardiothoracic surgery.  A number of projects are ongoing and include development of tissue engineering solutions to both cardiac and lung disease in children.
