Hakon Hakonarson Headshot

Dr. Hakonarson is director of the Center for Applied Genomics and professor of Pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. He leads a $40 million commitment from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to genomically characterize approximately 100,000 children, an initiative that has gained nationwide attention in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Time Magazine, Nature, and Science.


Kathryn E. Hamilton, PhD

Dr. Hamilton studies intestinal epithelial cells and how they help maintain human health. Although there is a great deal understood about how these cells function, little is known about how they behave during disease. Dr. Hamilton focuses on defining new mechanisms in regenerative medicine, inflammatory bowel disease, and colorectal cancer.


Erum A. Hartung, MD, MTR

Erum A. Hartung

Dr. Hartung's clinical and translational research program focuses on autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease and other genetic kidney diseases, development of new kidney and liver imaging biomarkers, and neurocognitive outcomes in children with chronic kidney disease.


Sarah E. Henrickson, MD, PhD

Dr. Henrickson investigates the mechanisms of T cell dysfunction in monogenic primary immunodeficiency and chronic inflammatory disease, including asthma and obesity, and primary immunodeficiency.


Robert O. Heuckeroth, MD, PhD

Robert O. Heuckeroth

Dr. Heuckeroth investigates mechanisms controlling bowel motility in order to find new ways to treat, diagnose, and prevent intestinal motility disorders. He works to define genetic, biochemical, and cellular processes that impact bowel function, with a special interest in the enteric nervous system and intestinal smooth muscle cells.


David A. Hill, MD, PhD

David A. Hill

Dr. Hill seeks to understand how the immune system contributes to the two most common chronic diseases of childhood: allergy and obesity. He uses clinical and epidemiological information to guide basic and translational research on the genetic, epigenetic, and immunologic basis of these important conditions.


Michael D. Hogarty, MD

Michael D. Hogarty

Dr. Hogarty is a pediatric oncologist with 20 years' experience as a physician-scientist with a careerlong focus on neuroblastoma translational biology.


Stephen P. Hunger, MD

Stephen P. Hunger

Dr. Hunger's focuses his research on molecular and genomic approaches to identify and clinically evaluate targeted cancer treatments for children with relapsed or high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) such as Philadelphia chromosome-like (Ph-Like) ALL. The long-term goal of Dr. Hunger’s research is to develop better therapies, improve cure rates, and minimize treatment toxicities for children with ALL.
