Dr. Canning has spent his research career in Pediatric Urology. He has studied bladder physiology in the developing normal and obstructed bladder. This work has included work on bladders of children with exstrophy, vesicoureteral reflux, posterior urethral valves, and hypoplastic bladder.


Christopher J. Cardinale, MD, PhD

Christopher J. Cardinale

Dr. Cardinale's research is focused on understanding the mechanisms of gene expression and gene regulation in autoimmune diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease, type 1 diabetes, and systemic sclerosis. He uses data from large-scale genomic studies to identify disease-causing genetic variants and functionally explore the target genes of those variants.


Carlo Castruccio Castracani, PhD

Carlo Castruccio Castracani

Dr. Castracani’s research work is focused on the most common form of X-linked sideroblastic anemia which results from mutations in the ALAS2 gene and inhibits normal heme biosynthesis.

Dr. Chang is a clinical investigator focusing on cardiovascular assessment and outcomes of pediatric-onset systemic lupus erythematosus (pSLE). Her research assesses the utility of various screening modalities, including echocardiography, ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, and tonometry, for the early detection of cardiovascular disease. Her research goals are to develop screening protocols and targeted interventions to prevent pSLE-related cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.


Maxwell Chapell

Maxwell Chapell

Maxwell Chappell is a graduate student working on developing improved lentiviral vectors as well as the use of lentiviral vectors for the treatment of alpha-thalassemia.


Marianne Chilutti, MS

Marianne Chilutti

As manager of the clinical reporting unit, Chilutti directs the clinical data reporting activities that take advantage of the EHR's extensive data set.


Peter S. Choi, PhD

Peter S. Choi Headshot

Dr. Choi's research focuses on the role of RNA-binding proteins in the regulation of alternative splicing and how mutations in these factors contribute to cancer. He uses a combination of genetically-engineered models and high-throughput approaches to better understand how alternative splicing influences cellular function and to identify potential opportunities for therapeutic intervention.


Michael Chorny, PhD

Michael Chorny

Dr. Chorny's research program focuses on nanomedicines as well as drug, cell, and gene delivery systems for treating proliferative disease. His current research specifically focuses on the use of nanoparticle-mediated delivery to solid tumors and site-specific delivery for cardiovascular disease.


Stella T. Chou, MD

Stella T. Chou, MD

Dr. Chou focuses on regenerative blood cellular therapy, the mechanisms of normal human hematopoietic development, and the pathophysiology of pediatric hematologic diseases.


John Chuo, MD, MS

John Chuo

Dr. Chuo's research focus is the use of innovation and technology in quality improvement implementation and evaluation, including innovative healthcare delivery models using telemedicine and collaborative clinical networks.


Christopher M. Cielo, DO

Christopher M. Cielo Headshot

Dr. Cielo conducted clinical and translational research related to the mechanisms and effects of obstructive sleep apnea in children, with a specific focus on infant populations, children with craniofacial conditions, and the use of MRI and other imaging modalities to understand structural contributors to obstructive sleep apnea in children.


Susan Coffin, MD, MPH

Susan Coffin

Dr. Coffin’s research interests focus on the epidemiology and prevention of healthcare-associated infections in the pediatric population. She also investigates the epidemiology of pediatric respiratory viral infections, with a particular emphasis on influenza.


Akiva S. Cohen, PhD

Akiva S. Cohen

Dr. Cohen's laboratory focuses on how traumatic brain injury alters hippocampal and cortical circuitry, thereby causing cognitive impairment.


Kristina A. Cole, MD, PhD

Kristina A. Cole

Dr. Cole is a pediatric neuro-oncologist who has dedicated her career to translational and clinical research, combining her expertise in molecular pathology, cancer genomics, and developmental therapeutics to identify novel treatments for children with cancer.
