Congenital heart disease is still the leading cause of death within the first year of life. Our lab forces on understanding the morphology of congenital heart disease. Outflow tract anomalies, including abnormal alignment or septation, account for 30 % of all congenital heart disease. To solve the developmental problem of these defects, we are interested in the role of the second heart field (SHF) that gives rise to the outflow tract structure.
