The University of Chicago Medicine has a long history of pioneering medical breakthroughs and innovative treatments, and the ACHD team is actively researching more innovative and comprehensive treatment options for congenital heart disease patients. Our team has been instrumental in writing and designing the national guidelines for the management of adults with congenital heart disease.


Improving Treatment Through Research


We are discovering more about the field every day through research and clinical trials, reshaping ACHD healthcare on a national level. We are involved in multiple large consortiums and alliances with key focus on fostering research in the adult with congenital heart disease in effort to improve both survival and quality of life.  


Clinical Trials for Congenital Heart Disease


UChicago Medicine physicians and researchers are leading clinical trials for new and better treatments for congenital heart disease. Our experts are using clinical trials to transform basic research, including the genetics of heart disease and gene therapies, into bedside care so we can offer our patients the benefits of novel therapies before they are widely available. Learn more about our clinical trials.
