Genes and Growth Disorders: A Case Study

Video   Nov 01, 2018 | Video from the Children's National Health System

 

As a pediatric endocrinologist, Andrew Dauber, M.D., MMSc, chief of endocrinology at Children’s National Health System, works in all areas of pediatric endocrinology, but specializes in studying and treating severe growth disorders.

A mutation to the PAPPA2 gene, observed in two families, allows Dauber and his research team to study atypical growth patterns, which helps personalize treatment for children with severe growth disorders.

This research was presented at the annual meeting of the European Society of Pediatric Endocrinology in Athens on Sept. 28, 2018. Learn more here.
