Cardiogenomics Program

The Cardiogenomics Program team at the Stanford Medicine Children’s Health Betty Irene Moore Children’s Heart Center is dedicated to identifying and caring for patients with inherited heart conditions and their family members. Inherited heart conditions can be passed down through families. Therefore, individuals with an inherited heart condition may have other blood-related family members who either have or are at risk of developing the same heart condition.

Our cardiogenomics team offers comprehensive evaluations with pediatric cardiologists and genetic counselors who specialize in identifying, treating, and supporting families with inherited heart disease.


Cardiogenetics 101

Learn about how genetics affects the risk of heart disease. Our cardiogenetics counselors cover in this talk the basics of genetics—how genes, along with DNA, create the blueprint for every human being and what that means for human hearts. They also explain how congenital heart defects can occur when a gene, or part of a gene, is missing.

This webinar recording covers the role that genetics play in heart disease, and how research is transforming our ability to diagnose and treat genetic heart disease. Our cardiogenetic researcher discusses these topics and provides insight into the current research efforts led at the Stanford School of Medicine and Betty Irene Moore Children’s Heart Center to help individuals with genetic heart diseases get better treatments and outcomes.
