Dr. Shabnam Peyvandi is a pediatric cardiologist that specializes in fetal diagnosis and management of congenital heart disease. Her main research interest is identifying fetal markers of neurodevelopmental outcomes in fetuses with critical CHD. She is an investigator in the clinical research program and collaborates with other members of the NBD center. Her current focus is utilizing maternal hyperoxia as a tool to understand fetal cerebral regulation and oxygenation in the setting of CHD as assessed by both fetal echocardiography and fetal brain MRI. She is also developing a longitudinal neurodevelopmental follow-up program (Healthy Hearts and Minds Program) as part of the Pediatric Heart Center at UCSF.
