Member, Division of Endocrinology
Neuro-endocrinology; hypothalamic-pituitary injury; growth disorders; puberty disorders; thyroid disorders; late effects of cancer
Susan Rose is professor for the Division of Endocrinology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center within the University of Cincinnati. She has published over 100 review articles or chapters, and about 100 peer-reviewed articles. These include updating guidelines for care of congenital hypothyroidism and writing the chapter on thyroid for Fanaroff's and Avery's textbooks of neonatology. She’s served on the state newborn screening (NBS) committee in Tennessee. She is involved in long term follow up of newborn screening for CAH and congenital hypothyroidism with Region 4 and with the Federal Workgroup on NBS Standards.
She has clinical expertise and research interests in hypothalamic pituitary function, thyroid hormone disorders, and in disorders of growth or puberty. She has a special interest in the effects of central nervous system injury on hypothalamic-pituitary function. In addition, she has expertise and experience in evaluating the endocrine conditions associated with congenital bone marrow failure syndromes such as Fanconi anemia, Blackfan Diamond anemia, and Shwachman-Diamond syndrome. In addition, she is evaluating the endocrine consequences of hypothalamic-pituitary injury, including traumatic brain injury and injury from treatments for cancer, as well as comparing the relative efficacy of several treatments for precocious puberty. In this study, she will be developing growth curves specific to Fanconi anemia, recognizing that healthy children with FA may not grow along the typical growth pattern of other healthy children.
