Science has the potential to make extraordinary leaps when the right people, ideas, and technology come together to solve complex problems.
We’re disrupting the traditional research space by re-imagining how science is done and funded, with a focus on supporting both projects and people. Through thoughtful and nimble investments of time and resources into the most pressing scientific questions, we develop tailored solutions and encourage bold, relentless scientific exploration toward our goals.
Our biomedical research work focuses on a rare form of congenital heart defects called single ventricle heart disease. While this field is in its infancy, with limited knowledge of cause, risk, outcomes, or treatments, we are confident that through coordinated strategic and interdisciplinary work, dynamic teaming, and flexible funding, we can illuminate a functional cure for patients and their families.
Integrating datasets to create comprehensive resources for the entire community
Developed collaboratively with scientific leaders in the community, the single ventricle Research Roadmap is a living ten-year plan toward comprehensive, multidisciplinary, and programmatic solutions to understand and overcome single ventricle heart disease.
Comprised of five significant knowledge and infrastructure gaps slowing down progress in single ventricle research, the roadmap defines crucial research pathways for exploration and investment.
