Dr. Rubenstein's research focuses on basic and translational studies of novel means to improve outcomes in cystic fibrosis. He initially focused on correcting the dysfunction of mutant cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) proteins, which led him to study how molecular chaperones regulate the biogenesis and trafficking of CFTR and other proteins that are relevant to cystic fibrosis.
Dr. Stallings is working on intervention trials involving three chronic diseases with nutrition-related abnormalities resulting in meaningful adverse outcomes: cystic fibrosis (new drugs), sickle cell disease (vitamin A) and chronic pancreatitis (enzyme replacement drug).
Dr. Mascarenhas is director of the Nutrition Support Service, section chief of nutrition in the Division of Gastroenterology and Nutrition, medical director of the Clinical Nutrition Department, and director of the Integrative Health Program. Her research interests involve 22q deletion syndrome, cystic fibrosis, nutrition, and integrative medicine.
Dr. Wang works on biomarker identification using multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging and homo- and hetero-nuclear spectroscopy techniques for pediatric disease research including tumors, iron overload, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, autism, mitochondrial, Gaucher’s, and Canavan’s diseases.
Dr. Goldfarb has special interests in the treatment of children with end-stage lung disease such as cystic fibrosis, interstitial lung disease, pulmonary late effects of oncology treatments, and other pulmonary disorders.
Dr. Mayer's research interests center on chronic respiratory failure, the pulmonary manifestations of neuromuscular disease, and assessing and managing patients with complex chest wall and spine disease.
The research interests of Dr. Allen include lung function testing in children, adolescents, and infants; developmental chest wall physiology; pulmonary complications of sickle cell disease; and complications of cystic fibrosis.
