• Optimizing treatment of childhood Graves’ disease
• The development of new diagnostic approaches for thyroid disease and thyroid cancer
• The identification of genes that cause thyroid cancer
• Examination of the toxicity of thyroid medications.
• Determining risks of thyroid diseases and treatments to the mother and fetus
