K. Nicole Weaver, MD
Clinical Geneticist @Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, OH, USA.
Clinical expertise lies in the areas of cardiovascular, craniofacial and biochemical genetics. Co-director of the Cincinnati Children’s Cardiovascular Genetics Clinic, which provides care to children and adults with diagnoses, such as Marfan, Loeys Dietz, Williams and vascular Ehlers Danlos syndromes. A member of the Costello Syndrome Family Network (CSFN) Professional Advisory Board since 2015, and an activate participant in CSFN meetings for the last five years. Understanding the natural history of rare genetic diagnoses is a particular concern for parents, and therefore understanding the medical concerns of adults with Costello syndrome became a focus of my clinical research.
Seema Mital, MD, FACC, FAHA, FRCP(C)
Head of Cardiovascular Research Cardiology Staff Cardiologist - Heart Function and Transplant Program Cardiology @The Hospital for Sick Children
Mital has a strong translational research program. She has extensive experience in the genetics/genomics of congenital heart disease and heart failure, personalized medicine and clinical trials. She established the SickKids Heart Centre Biobank, a multi-centre biorepository of children and adults with childhood onset heart disease for genomics research, one of the largest international repositories of its kind. She is the Scientific Co-lead of the Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research Cardiac Precision Medicine Program established in November 2014. Her research interests include genomics, pharmacogenomics and stem cell applications to model childhood heart disease and discover new therapies.
