Research & Innovation
Boston Children's Hospital's Division of Endocrinology operates one of the nation's most extensive research programs focused on pediatric endocrine disorders. With more than 50 basic science and clinical researchers, we are attempting to unravel the genetic and biochemical underpinnings of the endocrine system.
Specific projects we’re exploring include:
- improving treatment of diabetes by harnessing the power of the internet to improve communication between patients and their medical caregivers.
- research aimed at finding genes that cause diabetes and its complications.
- gene therapy strategies for rare metabolic disorders such as glycogen storage disease
