Pediatric Endocrinology & Diabetes Research

Investigators in NYU Langone’s Division of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes have diverse areas of interest and engage in a wide range of research activities. Their work is published in numerous peer-reviewed journals, and division members frequently deliver lectures at scientific conferences and other academic medical centers.

Research in the division focuses on pediatric diabetes and pediatric disorders that affect growth, the adrenal glands, and the pituitary gland. Investigators study the effects of medications and vitamins on the pediatric endocrine system, including hypercalcemia and problems with growth. Researchers have also studied the adverse effects of growth hormone therapies for puberty induction.

The investigators have studied geographic disparities in diabetes prevalence, as well as cortisol levels in children with diabetic ketoacidosis at diagnosis of new-onset type 1 diabetes mellitus. The division has been involved in the development of guidelines for children and adolescents with thyroid cancer.
