Emma Davis is currently a clinical research assistant for the Infant Brain Imaging Study at CAR.

Diva D. De León-Crutchlow, MD, MSCE

Diva D. De León-Crutchlow

Dr. De Leon-Crutchlow’s translational research program focuses on examining the pathophysiology of disorders of insulin regulation, identifying novel therapeutic targets, and developing new therapies for these conditions. The program approach includes patient-oriented research and bench research employing mouse models and primary islet cultures.

Thomas De Raedt, PhD

Thomas De Raedt

Dr. De Raedt researches pediatric high grade glioma development and aims to understand the involvement of crucial pathways. He investigates pathway interaction, and explores ways to develop therapies through analyzing human tumors, performing cellular studies, and developing accurate mouse models. This allows Dr. De Raedt and his team to perform novel pre-clinical studies that can lead to clinical trials.
