The Foundation of Stars has the privilege of working with researchers from all fields of expertise. In the coming months, we will share with you research projects on different axes of pediatric research. Thus you will discover a multitude of well-popularized scientific advances.

To celebrate February, which is Heart Month, we’ll be unveiling information on pediatric cardiology research and some of the most promising and exciting projects currently underway.

A study by a group of researchers from Université de Montréal and the CHU Sainte-Justine led to the implementation of a new treatment protocol for newborns afflicted with a specific cardiac disease, Noonan’s syndrome. Initial results illustrated that the treatment not only stopped the disease from progressing, but also turned back the clock. To date, over 20 children suffering from the syndrome have been treated, with positive results! What a splendid discovery!

Listen to Dr. Gregor Andelfinger, pediatric cardiologist at CHU Sainte-Justine and researcher at the CHU Sainte-Justine research centre, to learn more about this exciting scientific discovery!
