Description of Itmat Expertise

Dr. Grimberg is a translational physician scientist focusing on growth regulation at both the systemic and cellular levels. Through a combination of in vitro research and clinical investigations, her goal is to advance understanding of growth biology and apply the molecular biology of the growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor(IGF)axis to improving care of children with growth problems.
