Dr. Wood's research focuses on improving health service delivery to reduce HIV and STI incidence in adolescents and young adults. Her current projects examine improving uptake and adherence of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis in sexual and gender minority youth, increasing STI and HIV screening in primary care, and identifying patient, neighborhood, and clinic-based barriers to HIV and sexual health service delivery.
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.
Vijay Srinivasan, MBBS, MD, works in research and quality improvement programs dealing with critical illness endocrinopathies and nutrition to improve outcomes in critically ill children. His research focuses on stress hyperglycemia with tight glycemic control and nutrition therapy.
Dr. Mitchell's research aims to explain variations in childhood growth patterns related to the causes and prevention of diseases in later life. This includes studying the impact of behaviors and genes on body composition during development, especially childhood sleep and physical activity behavior.
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.
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. Guevara is the principal investigator on research grants evaluating health inequities in early childhood development and behavioral problems. He utilizes community-based participatory clinical trials involving parent advocacy groups, community organizations, and government agencies to test the effects of psychosocial interventions designed to provide parents with resources and tools to improve the care of their children.
Dr. Grimberg investigates the growth hormone (GH)/insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I axis and clinical issues related to child growth. Her recent research is focused on disparities in, and the decision-making related to, the medical management of children with short stature. She is fascinated by how differential societal pressures for tallness and the advent of an expensive therapeutic have transformed a fundamental aspect of pediatric healthcare.
