Personal profile

Research Interests

I have had the opportunity to study problems in a number of areas of endocrinology and metabolism. Recent efforts have included studies of the evolution of the metabolic syndrome led by Dr. Xiaobin Wang. I have been continuing work on thyroid disease including thyroid cancers with recent work focusing on detection of thyroid cancer metastases. I have participated in studies of micro-RNA's in craniopharyngioma and in studies within Diabetes Trialnet. A number of pediatric centers are planning to collate data on treatment of thyroid cancers. Along with some of my Lurie colleagues, I plan to contribute to this effort. In addition, I (along with some of my endocrine colleagues) plan to increase our involvement with childhood bone and mineral disorders. Currently, one of the endocrine fellows and I are investigating a novel cause of hypocalciuric hypercalcemia.
