Competence Network for Congenital Heart Defects
Basic Research in the Competence Network for Congenital Heart Defects
What are the causes of congenital heart defects? Which genes are responsible? Do affected
individuals need to be afraid to transmit the defect to their children? The competence network carries
out studies to identify disease genes for congenital heart defects and to detect familial occurrence. A
biomaterial bank has successfully been established to provide the infrastructure for these studies.
