Congratulations to Luke Lamers, MD, who was recently awarded $50,000 for his research grant entitled, “Assessment of Early vs. Delayed Catheter Intervention for Management of Pulmonary Artery Stenosis.” In this one-year grant from the UW Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR), Dr. Lamers will utilize a pig model to generate detailed data regarding the common clinical problem of pulmonary artery (PA) stenosis, in order to inform better decisions about timing of surgical intervention in treatment of congenital heart disease.
