Amir F Kagalwalla

Professor of Pediatrics (Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition)

Clinical and Research interests include Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) in pediatric populations including studying the mechanisms of fibrosis and remodeling,identifying non invasive biomarkers to assess recurrence of esophageal inflammation. Also interested and I am studying the impact of elimination diets in inducing and maintaining clinical and histological remission in children with EoE.

Patrick J Myers

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Neonatology)

Dr. Myers is the Fellowship Director of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine at Lurie Children's Hospital and Northwestern University. He trained as a pediatrics resident and neonatology fellow at the University of Chicago. Dr. Myers serves as the webmaster for the Organization of Neonatal Program Directors.

Mary L Kreiter

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Endocrinology)

I enjoy caring for children with disorders of growth, puberty and the adrenal, pituitary and thyroid gland. I also enjoy care of children with diabetes

Sally Reynolds

Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Emergency Medicine)

I graduated from Loyola Medical School and did pediatric residency and pediatric emergency medicine fellowship at Children's Memorial Hospital / Northwestern University. I served as the medical director of the emergency department at Children's Memorial and Lurie Children's hospital. I'm currently the medical director of risk management. I'm very involved in disaster planning for children and hospital preparedness.

Rebecca Newman

Instructor of Pediatrics (Hospital-Based Medicine)

Newborn care involving breastfeeding, nutrition, safety, skin care, and vaccine medicine

Meredith F Bone

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Critical Care) and Medical Education

I am a pediatric intensivist working with a team to care for broad range of critical ill children. My non-clinical work is centered on my roles as Director for the Office of Fellowship Programs and the Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship. My focus is on professional and career development of faculty and medical trainees.

Norell Rosado

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Child Abuse)

Dr. Rosado obtained his MD from Escuela Mexicana de Medicina, Universidad La Salle, and subsequently completed his residency in pediatrics at Sinai Children’s Hospital here in Chicago, where he also served as chief resident and then as Medical Director of Child Protective Services. He is board-certified in general pediatrics and child abuse pediatrics.   Before coming to Lurie Children’s in 2014, Dr. Rosado was on faculty in the Department of Pediatrics at Rush Medical College.

Paul T Schumacker

Professor of Pediatrics (Neonatology), Cell and Developmental Biology and Medicine (Pulmonary and Critical Care)

Our lab is interested in the effects of oxygen on cell metabolism, and in the molecular mechanisms underlying cellular oxygen sensing. The signaling pathways activated by hypoxia, and their regulation of transcriptional and post-translational responses in diverse cell types are also of major interest. Current studies focus on the role of mitochondrial redox signaling in the development of pulmonary hypertension. Other current studies focus on cardiomyocyte regeneration in the heart and molecular factors that regulate hypertrophic and hyperplastic remodeling responses.

Lacey L Kruse

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Dermatology) and Dermatology

I practice general pediatric dermatology with special interests in pediatric skin cancer, pigmented lesions in children, and atopic dermatitis.  My clinical interests include atopic dermatitis, pigmented lesions, melanoma, other forms of pediatric skin cancer, birthmarks, hair and nail disorders, inflammatory skin disorders, skin infections and exanthems.

Philip Iannaccone

Professor of Pediatrics and Pathology

The Sonic hedgehog signal in vertebrates is mediated by three C2H2 zinc finger transcription factors, GLI1, GLI2, and GLI3. We have shown that near identity of gene sequence exists between mouse and human GLI1 and that GLI1 functions as a transcription factor and that a critical domain in the COOH end of the protein is a transactivator with VP16-like structure. We established that GLI1 protein regulates a set of genes that coordinately control proliferation and may in part explain malignant transformation by misexpression of GLI1. We have established non-canonical activation of GLI1 by c-myc s...
