Paris Margaritis, DPhil

Paris Margaritis

Dr. Margaritis uses biochemical, molecular, and complex in vivo methodology within the field of coagulation to advance the understanding of molecular mechanisms involved in pro- and anti-coagulant reactions, and translate research for the treatment of coagulation defects.


John M. Maris, MD

John M. Maris

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.


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.


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.

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.


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.


Ganesh Moorthy, PhD

Ganesh Moorthy, PhD

Dr. Moorthy’s research focuses on liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry assays for translational research. He is an expert in developing and validating analytical methods and their implementation for pediatric and adult clinical sample analysis.


Amanda B. Muir, MD

Amanda B. Muir

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


Ashlee Murray, MD, MPH

Ashlee Murray

Dr. Murray is an academic and public health researcher focused on implementing and evaluating intimate partner violence programs in the pediatric healthcare setting.
