N1 - Funding Information: This is the third and final issue of Progress in Pediatric Cardiology that reports results from the second scientific conference on future research directions for children with cardiomyopathy which was held in Bethesda, Maryland in May 2010. The conference was sponsored by the Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute with additional support from the Myocarditis Foundation, GeneDX, and the Department of Pediatrics of the Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami. In this issue we begin with the results from the expert roundtable discussions regarding future directions in pediatric cardiomyopathy research in the areas of genetics, heart failure, cardiac biomarkers, and myocarditis. Funding Information: The editors wish to acknowledge the outstanding support of the Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation (CCF) and its president and founder Mrs. Lisa Yue for continuing and unwavering support for pediatric cardiomyopathy research. Mrs. Yue, with the CCF, has been the primary proponent and principal financial underwriter of the May 2010 conference held in Bethesda noted above. We also wish to recognize Kella Boyer and Sheila Gibbons from CCF whose considerable efforts made the conference possible, as well as the financial support from the Myocarditis Foundation and GeneDX. Also, the editors wish to express their gratitude to Mitzi Wilkinson MBA, Miriam Mestre MA, and Danielle Dauphin BA from the Department of Pediatrics of the Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami for their invaluable efforts in the planning, conduct and dissemination of the results of this important conference. Finally, we wish to thank Dr. Jonathan Kaltman and Dr. Gail Pearson of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute for their expertise and support for the Bethesda conference.
