Dr. Eric Devaney is a pediatric cardiac surgeon and director of the Pediatric Cardiac Transplant Program at Rady Children's Hospital and UC San Diego, as well as an associate professor of surgery at UC San Diego.

After earning his medical degree at UC Los Angeles, Dr. Devaney completed an internship and a residency in surgery at UC San Francisco. He continued his medical training with another residency in thoracic surgery and a fellowship in pediatric cardiovascular surgery at University of Michigan.

Dr. Devaney's principal clinical interests are the surgical treatment of neonatal congenital heart disease and pediatric heart failure, though he also has a strong interest in basic science research. The Devaney laboratory at UC San Diego is currently analyzing the effects of genetic modification of cardiac motor proteins in normal and failing hearts. His lab is also generating induced pluripotent stem cells for cardiovascular studies and tissue engineering.
