Delayed puberty is a common pediatric condition, but the causes and consequences of delayed puberty remain incompletely understood. This project uses three approaches to study delayed puberty:
1) A retrospective chart review to define the clinical characteristics of children with delayed puberty and to identify potential phenotypic subgroups.
2) In-person research visits with adults with a history of delayed puberty to study the long-term consequences of delayed puberty.
3) Human genetic studies to identify both common and rare genetic variants that can contribute to delayed puberty, with the broader goal of understanding how pubertal timing is determined in general.
The time commitment is flexible. Though listed as "6 months or more," students looking for a shorter project are welcome to contact our group.
There is potential for a "gap" year to be funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation through their Clinical Research Mentorship. The application deadline for the 2017 cycle is January 24, 2017.
