Deepak Srivastava, M.D.


Research Interests:
Developmental biology, pediatric cardiology, congenital heart defects, organogenesis, human genetics, stem cells, cardiac repair

Dr. Srivastava’s work focuses on understanding cardiac development by elucidating the molecular events regulating early and late developmental decisions that instruct progenitor cells to adopt a cardiac cell fate and subsequently fashion a functioning heart. This foundation has been used to discover the genetic basis for some congenital heart malformations.
