The Kalish Lab focuses on improving clinical care for children with BWS through clinical and translational research. The lab oversees the BWS registry and biorepository and its work uses clinical data and samples to understand the transition between normal growth, overgrowth, and cancer. The lab’s clinical research focuses on improving care for the clinical features of BWS and understanding the correlations between those manifestations. Through this work the lab continues to develop national management guidelines for BWS. Its translational research focuses on how the epigenetic and genetic changes lead to the features of BWS including overgrowth and cancer, with goals of understanding these mechanisms and developing therapeutics.
