Dr. Maris investigates the molecular and genetic mechanisms contributing to the development and progression of neuroblastoma, a common childhood cancer. He also aims to develop new molecular diagnostic tests and less toxic, targeted therapies to treat relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma, including a major effort in immunotherapy discovery and development.


Michael S. Marks, PhD

Michael S. Marks

Dr. Marks investigates the molecular mechanisms underlying the formation of cell type-specific lysosome-related organelles; the assembly, delivery and function of their contents; and how these processes are impacted by genetic diseases.


Eric D. Marsh, MD, PhD

Eric D. Marsh

Dr. Marsh's research program focuses on understanding how changes in brain development lead to epilepsy, intellectual disability, and autism. He combines molecular and physiological tools in mouse models to ask questions about the interaction of normal development with single gene mutations to determine how the brain responds to perturbations in development.


Maria R. Mascarenhas, MBBS

Maria R. Mascarenhas

Dr. Mascarenhas is director of the Nutrition Support Service, section chief of nutrition in the Division of Gastroenterology and Nutrition, medical director of the Clinical Nutrition Department, and director of the Integrative Health Program. Her research interests involve 22q deletion syndrome, cystic fibrosis, nutrition, and integrative medicine.


Shannon L. Maude, MD, PhD

Shannon L. Maude

Dr. Maude focuses on novel therapies for high-risk and relapsed pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). She aims to identify new pediatric ALL treatments that are more effective, less toxic, and exhibit fewer side effects than existing cancer therapies.


Jennifer A. Mautone, PhD

Jennifer A. Mautone

Dr. Mautone's research focuses on assessment and treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. She has expertise in family-school-health system collaboration, classroom consultation, and integrated behavioral health in primary care settings. She has a special interest in increasing access to high-quality, culturally competent care for underserved children and families.


Oscar H. Mayer, DO

Oscar H. Mayer Headshot

Dr. Mayer's research interests center on chronic respiratory failure, the pulmonary manifestations of neuromuscular disease, and assessing and managing patients with complex chest wall and spine disease.


Stephanie L. Mayne, PhD, MHS

Stephanie L. Mayne

Dr. Mayne is an epidemiologist whose research focuses on preventing cardiovascular disease and promoting healthy behaviors in children and their families. She employs multilevel and longitudinal methods to study how factors at the individual, family, neighborhood, and policy level influence risk factor behaviors and cardiometabolic outcomes. She is also engaged in research to promote innovation in pediatric primary care.


Shana E. McCormack, MD, MTR

Shana E. McCormack

Dr. McCormack investigates the intersection of neuroendocrinology and metabolism. Her translational research program involves two areas. The first involves studying those with genetic disorders, including primary mitochondrial diseases and Friedreich's ataxia, with characterized risk for diabetes mellitus. Second, Dr. McCormack focuses on brain disorders associated with excess weight gain, including brain tumor-related hypothalamic obesity syndrome and idiopathic intracranial hypertension.

Dr. Mehta serves as Program Director, Pediatric Rheumatology Fellowship at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.


Kevin E. C. Meyers, MBBCh

Kevin E. C. Meyers, MBBCh

Dr. Meyers' research addresses ways to help improve outcomes in children with nephrotic syndrome and hypertension.


Victoria A. Miller, PhD

Victoria A. Miller

Dr. Miller conducts developmentally informed behavioral research to examine the impact of parent-youth communication and decision making on health-related behaviors and outcomes. She aims to conduct research that facilitates youth involvement and empowerment in health-related decision making and enhances parent-youth-provider relationships.


Judith S. Miller, PhD, MS

Judith S. Miller

Dr. Miller's research focuses on the diagnostic and classification issues most pressing to autism spectrum disorder (ASD) research, including differentiating ASD from other genetic and psychiatric conditions, diagnosis across the lifespan, and early identification and screening.


Cynthia J. Mollen, MD, MSCE

Cynthia J. Mollen

Dr. Mollen's research career has been focusing on using non traditional setting as sites for interventions to improve adolescent reproductive health. She founded and oversees a research program in Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Emergency Department that provides sexual health education and HIV testing services, and explores intervention opportunities for increasing access to reproductive health services in the ED.


Dimitrios S. Monos, PhD

Dimitrios S. Monos

Dr. Monos is an internationally recognized expert on histocompatibility (HLA) molecules. His work covers a wide spectrum of HLA-related issues that pertain to both the molecular (structure/function) aspects of HLAs, as well as the genetics of the major histocompatibility complex, that includes the genes encoding the HLA molecules.


Yael P. Mossé, MD

Yael P. Mossé

Dr. Mossé's research goal is to improve cure rates for the childhood cancer neuroblastoma by discovering the genetic basis of the disease and translating rational therapeutic opportunities to the clinic. She studies the contribution of DNA sequence variations and activation mutations of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) genes on the development and progression of both inherited and acquired forms of neuroblastoma.


Sogol Mostoufi-Moab, MD, MSCE

Sogol Mostoufi-Moab Headshot

Dr. Mostoufi-Moab's clinical and research program is focused on endocrine late effects after childhood cancer therapy. She has unique dual training in pediatric endocrinology and oncology with a master's degree in clinical epidemiology.
