For some people, matters of the heart are best left to Dear Abby or marriage therapists. But if future physicians and researchers find ways to treat or even prevent congenital heart defects, IUPUI-based medical researcher Simon Conway and his team may be a big reason why.
Conway came to the School of Medicine from the renowned Medical College of Georgia and is a past recipient of the Young Investigators Award. In the laboratory in IUPUI's Research II building, he and his team are refining genetic tests that some day may help doctors understand the genes that help develop heart muscles, giving the medical community better tools to give future patients longer, fuller lives.
The British-born Conway also serves in the Herman B Wells Center for Pediatric Research, is a member of the regulation of cell growth program in the IU Cancer Center and is an adjunct faculty member in the department of anatomy and cell biology, all based at IUPUI.
