    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.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
