We are focused on improving the understanding of the pathogenesis and treatment of human adrenal disorders. Our research efforts are tightly linked to the BWH Center for Adrenal Disorders. Our research interests include:

1) Understand the Expanding Spectrum of Primary Aldosteronism
2) Optimizing the Treatment of Primary Aldosteronism
3) Understanding the Causes and Consequences of Adrenal Tumors and Pheochromocytoma/Paraganglioma
4) Improving the Quality of Life for Patients with Adrenal Insufficiency/Addison's Disease
5) Understanding the Interaction Between Adrenal- and Calcium-Regulatory Hormones
