Rajab Lab

Research in the Rajab Laboratory:

Dr. Konrad Rajab’s laboratory focuses on unsolved problems in congenital cardiac surgery and has a strong translational emphasis. It forms an integral part of the Lee Patterson Allen Transplant Immunobiology Laboratory, but is highly collaborative within the interdisciplinary MUSC community and beyond. Current projects in the lab include the development of a new operation, understanding the immune privilege of heart valves, and medical device development. This work has resulted in numerous publications and patent applications.
