About the Neil Chi Lab 

We're gaining insights into the molecular mechanisms of cardiovascular diseases and the developmental pathways that help create the cardiovascular system. We hope to translate our findings into new methods of detecting and treating cardiovascular diseases, the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in children and adults around the world.
