Dr. Ro seeks to leverage her experience and expertise, toward developing a platform technology where academic ideas can be effectively and efficiently transferred to the private sector.
 
David Hoganson, MD, Assistant in Cardiac Surgery Instructor in Surgery - Dr. Hoganson trained in cardiothoracic surgery at Washington University in St. Louis and completed his fellowship in congenital heart surgery (BCH). Currently, he leads clinical research programs to study the use of autologous umbilical veins as shunts in neonates with complex congenital heart disease and to develop new heart transplant therapies. Further, with a background in engineering, he strives to innovate and develop new medical devices, therapies, and treatments to ever improve the cardiac surgery repairs and overall care.
