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. Takano's research focuses on basic epilepsy and related neuroscience research centered on advanced optical imaging techniques such as fluorescence lifetime imaging and two-photon microscopy; and application of micro- and nanotechnology like graphene transparent electrode to functional cellular imaging.
Dr. Scribano's areas of interest and research involve the epidemiology and prevention of child maltreatment and intimate partner violence, technology use in healthcare, and health services to children in foster care.
Dr. Jenssen's research involves the use of clinical decision support systems and population health management techniques to protect children from secondhand smoke exposure and tobacco use. More broadly, he focuses on leveraging health information technology to engineer and implement novel approaches and products to improve care for children and their parents.
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. 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.
As a bioengineer, Dr. Arbogast's research focuses on pediatric injury biomechanics, injury causation and the effectiveness of safety products for children with a concentration in the safety of children and youth in motor vehicle crashes as well as pediatric concussion.
Dr. Hunger's focuses his research on molecular and genomic approaches to identify and clinically evaluate targeted cancer treatments for children with relapsed or high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) such as Philadelphia chromosome-like (Ph-Like) ALL. The long-term goal of Dr. Hunger’s research is to develop better therapies, improve cure rates, and minimize treatment toxicities for children with ALL.
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.
Dr. Won is the Human Factors Program Manager for the Center for Healthcare Quality and Analytics (CHQA), adjunct assistant professor for the Perelman School of Medicine and the School of Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, and a senior fellow at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention.
