Dr. Ahrens-Nicklas works to understand why patients with inherited biochemical disorders often suffer severe, untreatable neurologic and cardiac symptoms. She strives to elucidate the link between biochemistry and network excitability, in order to drive new approaches to therapy.
Dr. Berg is a resuscitation scientist with extensive clinical and preclinical translational laboratory experience in the areas of cardiac arrest, VF, defibrillation, and personalized physiologic-directed CPR. He has substantial expertise in conducting multicenter observational and interventional trials.
Dr. DeMauro has special expertise in rigorous assessment of early childhood outcomes of high-risk neonates. Her research focuses on improving outcomes of children with bronchopulmonary dysplasia and school-age assessment of functional outcomes in preterm-born children.
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. Freedman has a particular interest in epidemiologic and translational research within pediatric supportive oncology. He aims to advance the understanding and treatment of symptoms, infections, and organ toxicities in pediatric cancer and hematopoietic stem cell transplant patients.
Dr. Foglia's research aims to identify the best methods to monitor and perform neonatal resuscitation, with the ultimate goal of optimizing outcomes for high risk infants who require resuscitation in the delivery room and neonatal intensive care unit setting.
Dr. Willi's research focuses on therapeutics for type 1 and type 2 diabetes and he has performed a number of physiologic studies in the etiology and characterization of diabetes in children. His current studies include trials on the delay of progression of type 1 diabetes and a multicenter trial to examine the optimal therapeutics for type 2 diabetes in children.
