Lisa MacDowell, MBA, CPA, CIA

Lisa MacDowell

Advances the Research Institute’s commitment to the development of shared resources that facilitate interdisciplinary research through numerous Core facilities that service both laboratory and clinical research programs.


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.


Aaron J. Masino, PhD

Aaron J. Masino

Dr. Masino and his team research the application and development of machine learning methods to inform basic scientific discovery and the creation of predictive analytic models for personal health and clinical decision support. 


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.


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.


Catherine C. McDonald, PhD, RN, FAAN

Catherine C. McDonald

Dr. McDonald is a pediatric nurse scientist building a focused program of research aimed at promoting health and reducing injury in youth.


Denise M. Melvin, MSM, RBP

Denise M. Melvin

Oversees three departments committed to the health and safety of Research Institute staff and serves as the Institutional Biosafety Officer.


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.


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. 


Jonathan A. Mitchell, PhD

Jonathan A. Mitchell

Dr. Mitchell's research aims to explain variations in childhood growth patterns related to the causes and prevention of diseases in later life. This includes studying the impact of behaviors and genes on body composition during development, especially childhood sleep and physical activity behavior.


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.


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. The goal of her research program is to pursue a mechanistic understanding of metabolic and endocrine disorders that occur due to cancer therapy.


Amanda B. Muir, MD

Amanda B. Muir

Dr. Muir investigates the mechanisms underlying esophageal fibrosis to improve therapeutic and diagnostic approaches.


Naveen Muthu, MD

Naveen Muthu

Dr. Muthu's research interest is in the area of cognitive informatics, with a focus on the refinement and application of cognitive engineering methods to improve health information technology safety and augment clinical decision-making.
