Ross Clinical Research


I am a tenured Professor of Pediatrics at Thomas Jefferson University (TJU), and my qualifications include board certification in Pediatrics and Pediatric Endocrinology and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) certification. I have over 25 years of pediatric research experience, focused on endocrine and neurodevelopmental outcomes in children with X and Y chromosome disorders (XYY syndrome, Klinefelter syndrome, Turner syndrome). Results of this research has elucidated neurophysiological, pathological, and molecular genotype-phenotype relationships, and the role of selected X and Y genes in children in health and disease. My experience in translating results from clinical trials into patient-centered algorithms that improve clinical outcomes is demonstrated by a publication in the New England Journal of Medicine of results of a clinical trial, suggesting a new approach to earlier estrogen replacement in girls with Turner syndrome. As an active clinical researcher, I have partnered with patients and families, and other stakeholders, have spoken at national meetings, and serve on advisory boards of the advocacy organizations (AXYS [Klinefelter syndrome, XYY syndrome]). I currently serve as a member of the AXYS Clinic and Research Consortium.
