Sunjay Kaushal, M.D., Ph.D.

Kaushal is director of pediatric cardiac surgery at the University of Maryland where he performs complex surgeries on pediatric patients with congenital heart conditions. He is a leading research to address hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), a life-threatening congenital heart condition in newborn babies. If left untreated, HLHS is usually fatal in the first weeks of life. Currently there is no cure for this devastating condition. Longeveron and Kaushal are collaborating to conduct a clinical trial to treat this condition under a grant awarded by the Maryland Stem Cell Foundation.
