Dr. Constantine Stratakis earned his medical and D.Sc. degrees at the University of Athens. He did an internship at the Hospital Cochin in Paris and a residency in pediatrics at Georgetown University Hospital. In 1993, he joined the Developmental Endocrinology Branch of NICHD as a clinical associate.
Dr. Stratakis's research focuses on identifying mechanisms
that underlie endocrine oncgenesis, particularly those associated
with adreno-cortical and pituitary tumors. His main project is
the identification of the gene for Carney complex, a multiple
endocrine neoplasia, and lentiginosis syndrome. Other diseases
of interest include other multiple endocrine neoplasia syndromes,
familial hyperaldosteronism and glucocorticoid resistance, and
childhood adrenocortical cancer.
Dr. Taymans came to NIH in 1991 as a predoctoral-IRTA fellow with the Developmental Endocrinology Branch of the Child Health Institute. After completing her doctorate, she stayed on with that branch, and is currently working with Dr. Stratakis on the positional cloning of the Carney complex locus.
Dr. Kirschner completed an internal medicine residency at the
University of Minnesota Hospital and Clinic in Minneapolis, before
joining NIH as a senior fellow in the Interinstitute Endocrinology
Training Program with NICHD.
