As part of the mission of the World Society for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery, a Research Committee has been created with the goals of encouraging, developing and overseeing clinical research in pediatric and congenital heart surgery across the world. There will be an emphasis on regional and long-term outcomes involving lesions or pathologies in different geographical areas. In addition, the Research Committee will work to define the resources available for these types of outcomes research in all regions of the world.
