Marc Moon, MD

Professor of Surgery (Cardiothoracic Surgery)

Washington University in St. Louis (WU)

Currently overseeing an active laboratory examining right-heart physiology in chronic pulmonary hypertension whose goals are to develop a mathematical model of right atrial (RA)-right ventricular (RV) function that can be used to predict the consequences of isolated right-sided pathology and surgical procedures that rely heavily on normal right-heart function for success (such as heart transplantation, Maze procedure and Fontan operation). Awarded a Thoracic Surgery Foundation Research Grant to study the pathophysiology and treatment of chronic pulmonary hypertension. A recipient of an NIH R01 grant entitled “Pathophysiology and Treatment of Pulmonary Hypertension.” Appointed as the director of the Center for Diseases of the Thoracic Aorta in December 2000 and became the program director of the Cardiothoracic Surgery Residency Program in June 2004.
