Deepening its commitment to pediatric cardiovascular research, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Research Institute has launched the CHOP Cardiovascular Institute (CHOP CVI).

Led by Daniel P. Kelly, MD, current Director of the Penn Cardiovascular Institute (Penn CVI), the new institute will develop novel research programs and partner with existing programs in the Penn CVI. Harnessing the collective power of CHOP and Penn Medicine, the CHOP CVI will drive scientific discovery and medical breakthroughs that will improve pediatric cardiovascular care.

“CHOP has a longstanding history of providing superlative pediatric cardiac care, and under Dr. Kelly’s leadership, the CHOP Cardiovascular Institute will raise that standard of care even higher,” said Susan L. Furth, MD, PhD, Executive Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. “We are so pleased to have him join us to lead this new undertaking.”
