Professor of Pediatrics, Part-time, Harvard Medical School, Medical Genetics, Mass General for Children
After training in pediatrics, pediatric cardiology, and medical genetics, I have the honor of working as a medical geneticist at Mass General for Children. I have a longstanding interest in syndrome delineation, especially those with cardiovascular abnormalities; the essential role of advocacy (support) groups, and mentoring trainees to publish. I am dedicated to the care of people with rare disorders to help them achieve diagnosis, counseling, access to treatment and care coordination. My clinical research focuses on defining phenotypes, which is necessary to support the pursuit of therapies.
For over ten years, I have Co-Directed a multispecialty clinic for Turner syndrome, and participated in the 2016 Turner Syndrome Consensus meeting. Since 2017, I have Co-Directed (with pediatric cardiologist Dr. Mark Lindsay) the MGH Myhre syndrome clinic, the only multispecialty clinic in North America providing care across the lifespan. Our work is enriched by the people and families in the Myhre Syndrome Foundation. I also participate in our HHT Center of Excellence (Genetics and Pediatrics). Other interests include Sotos syndrome, Costello syndrome, CHARGE syndrome, Sensenbrenner syndrome (Cranioectodermal Dysplasia), Branchio-Oculo Facial Syndrome, and ABL1-related CHD-Skeletal Malformation Syndrome. I am intrigued by representations of syndromes and birth defects in art and antiquities and what they teach us about humanity.
Although I do not host a designated clinic for MN1 C-Terminal Truncation Syndrome (MCTT, CEBALID syndrome), I follow several patients and participate in international research.
Outside of my primary work at MGH, I have worked in the field of birth defects surveillance. Since 1997, I've been a consultant to the MA Dept. of Public Health, Birth Defects Monitoring Program, Center for Birth Defects Research and Prevention.
