The Department of Pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine offers a broad range of subspecialty fellowship programs designed to train academically-minded physicians with a strong foundation in research. Explore the pages and programs listed below for more information.

I will be embarking on a project evaluating the use of cardiac magnetic resonance strain in the chronic anemia population.
My interest is in working with neonates who have seizures. I perform clinical research and quality improvement studies with this group in order to improve care.

I'm interested in the function of mitochondria within the central nervous system in both primary mitochondrial disease and during critical illness. My current work is more closely related to the first goal, as I am working on a mouse model of Leigh syndrome in the Laboratory of Dr. Navdeep Chandel. I am also in the process of reviewing the genotype and clinical phenotype of patients seen at Lurie Children's for the past 30 years. I am trying to identify changes in mitochondrial metabolism that cause neurologic dysfunction by connecting a clinical perspective with basic mitochondrial biology.
I am supported by an NIH NINDS R25 grant. The funding mechanism is designed to give resident-level trainees a minimum of 80% protected bench research time. The protection spans the end of residency training through up to two years of post-doctoral work.
I feel every idea spawns 30 new ones, which can be daunting, but at Lurie this has been a good thing! I have found excellent support in cultivating and pursuing the path of ideas I find most exciting."
