Dr. Pacifici's biomedical research spans three decades and has explored mechanisms of skeletal development and growth in fetal and postnatal life. Specifically, his focus has been on identifying the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate the differentiation of progenitor cells and permit assembly of distinct skeletal structures, and on aberrations of these mechanisms in pediatric skeletal disorders.
Dr. Padula, an attending neonatologist and medical director of Informatics for the Division of Neonatology at CHOP and professor of clinical pediatrics at University of Penn, focuses his research on neonatal infections and resuscitation, neurodevelopmental outcomes, and prediciton/classification models.
Dr. Palumbo’s research is focused on child safety restraint use during air travel and on measuring social exposures that contribute to health outcomes. She also investigates the influence of policies on behaviors and health outcomes, and practical application of novel analytical research methods.
Dr. Panitch has long had an interest in the care of children with complex respiratory problems and those requiring technology assistance. His research has focused on airway smooth muscle, dynamic airway collapsibility, RSV bronchiolitis pathogenesis and prevention, and barriers to transitioning technology dependent children to adult care.
Dr. Parish-Morris investigates social communication, specifically how vocal communication develops in children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder. She uses computational approaches and machine learning to identify objective and reliable behavioral markers for use in screening, treatment and intervention response tracking, and to advance biological research.
Dr. Paskewich has expertise in translational research to develop, implement, and evaluate school-based aggression and bullying prevention programs. She develops implementation methods that integrate empirically supported prevention strategies with procedures that foster necessary school engagement.
Dr. Pasquariello is specifically interested in peri-operative improvement and quality improvement. She has a green belt in Lean Six Sigma. Dr. Pasquariello has spearheaded projects to improve OR efficiency and patient safety. She is involved in physician wellness in the Division of General Anesthesia.
Dr. Patterson’s work focuses on stressors that put children and families at risk for future difficulties. He offers psychosocial care to families as they cope with having a child in a N/IICU. Partnering with the interdisciplinary team, he functions as an administrative leader, educator, and researcher.
Dr. Peddy is the Cardiac Center Simulation Director and oversees the multidisciplinary educational curriculum using high fidelity simulation technology to create clinical teaching scenarios in the CICU, CCU, and CPRU. Her clinical responsibility is as a staff cardiac intensivist in the CICU.
Dr. Peebles’ research interests focus on the health outcomes of disordered eating in adolescents of diverse weight ranges, and how the Internet can be used as a vector to both help and harm young people as they try to approach a healthy weight.
Dr. Pei's research aims to understand the molecular underpinnings of cardiac remodeling associated with cardiomyopathy and heart failure. He is particularly interested in two areas of cardiac remodeling: metabolic reprogramming, and secretion of heart-derived hormones to communicate with other organs.
Dr. Pellegrino is committed to CHOP’s research missions and works collaboratively to create a culture of learning, discovery, integrity, and innovation to ensure success of the next generation of scientific leaders in child health.
Dr. Perate is an anesthesiologist with a specialty in Neuroanesthesia at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, an associate director with the CHOP Trauma Center, and an assistant professor of Clinical Anesthesiology and Critical Care. Dr. Perate's research focuses on sepsis and adaptive immunity.
Dr. Phillips' research interests involve learning health systems and the intersection of technology and clinical informatics with clinical research for pediatric oncology patients. His current focus is on developing novel automated methods to identify cancer patients with malnutrition and optimizing their nutritional support. He has a secondary interest in quality improvement research for supportive care in pediatric oncology.
In addition to serving as chief of the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition, Dr. Piccoli pursues research about metabolic and genetic liver disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and rare gastrointestinal disorders. He is a member of the group that discovered Jagged1 and NOTCH2 as the primary causes of Alagille syndrome.
Dr. Pinney investigates the molecular mechanisms that link an adverse intrauterine milieu to the development of diabetes and obesity later in life. Specifically, she is researching how intrauterine growth restriction, gestational diabetes and in utero exposure to environmental toxicants contribute to the development of diabetes and obesity in offspring.
Dr. Pogoriler's research focuses on pediatric lung disease and neoplasia. These interests come together in her work on congenital cystic lung lesions and their potential premalignant diagnosis. She collaborates with both clinicians and basic scientists on pediatric cancer research.
Dr. Poncz investigates the megakaryocyte-platelet-thrombus axis. The process by which hematopoietic stem cells differentiate into megakaryocytes are the central foci of his laboratory work. Many of his studies focus on the biology and pathobiology of the platelet-specific proteins, chemokines Platelet Factor 4 (PF4)/Platelet Basic Protein (PBP) and the integrin alphaIIb/beta3 receptor.
Dr. Posencheg is an attending neonatologist in the Division of Neonatology at CHOP, a professor of Clinical Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania, and the chief medical officer at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. His research interests lie in quality improvement and patient safety initiatives for newborn care.
Dr. Power's research focuses on the implementation of evidence-based interventions for children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in community settings, including schools and primary care practices. The emphasis of his work is on developing the capacity of professionals in the community to provide evidence-based care for children and adolescents with attention, behavior, and emotional difficulties.
Dr. Pradhan is chief of the Division of Nephrology and outpatient director of the Dialysis Unit at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and professor of Clinical Pediatrics in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Her research focuses on neuroimaging in chronic kidney disease.
Dr. Priestley is an attending intensivist at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and a professor of Clinical Anesthesiology and Critical Care at the University of Pennsylvania. Her research interests are in infant botulism, pediatric trauma, and preventing bloodstream infections.
Dr. Prosser's research focuses are the development and rehabilitation of movement in children, particularly those with neurological impairments. This includes the investigation of the development of impaired movement, the study of novel motor rehabilitation interventions in children, and the interaction between the processes of neuroplasticity and neuromaturation in sensorimotor systems.
Dr. Psihogios' research focuses on improving treatment adherence in adolescents and young adults (AYA) with chronic medical conditions, particularly those with cancer. She uses real-time mobile health strategies to better understand the day-to-day factors that proximally impact treatment adherence.
Dr. Puopolo helped lead the research team that developed and validated multivariate prediction models for neonatal early-onset sepsis risk assessment. Her current research addresses the impacts of maternal immunity, perinatal antibiotic exposure, and neonatal infection on infant and childhood health.
