Dr. Eichenwald's research interests include clinical trials and quality improvement in neonatal-perinatal medicine. He has extensive experience in the conduct of multicenter clinical trials, having served as a site principal investigator for several funded, multicenter randomized trials of interventions aimed at improving outcomes of premature newborns.
Dr. Jawad has more than 20 years’ experience in designing, analyzing, and reporting medical research studies and clinical trials. He served as a co-investigator in numerous research studies covering a variety of child illnesses such as diabetes, sickle cell, immunology, infections, and mental illnesses.
Dr. Grupp develops and conducts preclinical testing of engineered cell therapies and signal transduction inhibitors in leukemia, in pediatric immunotherapy trials, and in the manufacture and use of cellular therapeutics in preclinical, good manufacturing practices, and clinical trial settings. Dr. Grupp leads most CTL019 (CD19 CAR) clinical trials, and his colleagues are the global leaders in highly active CAR T cell therapy.
Dr. Zorc's work focuses on the intersection of interventional clinical research, quality improvement (QI), and clinical informatics. He has formal certification in epidemiology, QI methodology, and clinical informatics, and has participated in multi-center research networks, guideline and improvement collaboratives, and electronic health record development locally and nationally.
Dr. Olson aims to improve diagnostics and treatment of bone marrow failure (BMF) syndromes, and to improve clinical hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) outcomes. He conducts clinical trials of HSCT for non-malignant hematologic diseases. His laboratory explores both basic and translational research focused on genomics of BMF and the impact of BMF on hematopoietic niche function during HSCT.
Dr. Li’s methodology research interests include clinical trial design, survival analysis, longitudinal data analysis, and statistical methods for health services research. The current focus of her research is on statistical designs and analyses for early phase cancer clinical trials, such as Bayesian adaptive designs for dose-finding trials and platform trials. Her collaborative research focuses on pediatric oncology, ranging from translational research to clinical trials and epidemiology studies.
Dr. Bagatell’s research focuses on improving therapies for children with neuroblastoma. She leads clinical research studies designed to critically evaluate current therapies for children with high-risk and relapsed disease, and is committed to conducting studies of new therapies for this population. She is currently pursuing research designed to evaluate biomarkers for response to targeted therapy in children with high-risk disease.
Dr. Levine has an active laboratory research program that complements and extends his clinical studies. He has identified the molecular basis of several inherited disorders of mineral metabolism. His research interests extend to the molecular basis for embryological development of the parathyroid glands.
Dr. Pamela Weiss is an experienced academic pediatric rheumatologist with advanced training in clinical epidemiology and a focus on early diagnosis, accurate phenotyping, and targeted treatment of children with juvenile arthritis. Her research consists of a mixture of prospective interventional, prospective observational and retrospective large database-driven work.
Dr. Joffe's research addresses three areas. First, he studies leadership in biomedical science, including governance within learning healthcare systems and the role of the principal investigator in multicenter trials. Second, he studies the ethical questions raised by genomic sequencing in medicine and science. Finally, he studies the ethics of human subjects research, including informed consent and clinical research design.
