    Research Overview

    We are interested in understanding obesity and adiposity in children and adolescents with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH), as these youth have an increased prevalence of obesity beyond normative pediatric populations. We are also interested in various stages of development in CAH youth, from infancy through puberty. We hope to inform prevention efforts and treatment of complications through a better understanding of pathophysiology of CAH and obesity.

    We seek to apply novel imaging technology to answer important questions in childhood metabolism and obesity.
