Patient Age Group

Edit Profile


I am a clinical pediatric endocrinologist specializing in the care of children with hormonal disorders. After I completed my training in pediatric endocrinology at Johns Hopkins and the National Institutes of Health I joined the faculty at MGH and Harvard Medical School where I provide inpatient and outpatient clinical care, supervise and mentor trainees, administer a clinic and conduct clinical research to enhance our knowledge and the quality of patient care in pediatric endocrinology.

My clinical interests and expertise revolve around the practice of caring for patients with a variety of complex medical problems. I have been actively involved in clinical work providing treatment for patients with metabolic bone disease, Type 1 and 2 Diabetes Mellitus, pituitary insufficiency and disorders of biosynthesis of adrenal hormones. I attend at satellite offices to provide outlying communities the opportunity of such sub-specialty care.

I have been actively involved in teaching and supervision of medical students, residents and fellows since I joined MGH/HMS faculty. In addition, I lecture regularly in the pediatric endocrine units’ core curriculum. I give both formal and informal lectures to residents, fellows and medical students throughout the year. I have mentored pediatric endocrine fellows in the clinic and have served on their research committees.

In addition to providing administrative oversight, clinical care and teaching I have been involved in developing clinical research protocols looking at endocrine manifestations to proton beam therapy as well as adrenal leukodystrophy.

In my role as the clinical director of the pediatric endocrine unit I am developing sub specialty clinics within our division and across multiple specialties. The Bone and Mineral Metabolism clinic is the first such clinic which specializes specifically in metabolic bone diseases in childhood.

Research & Publications

Research Summary

Dr. Marino has worked with Dr. Baron’s group at the NIH in characterizing the physiology and endocrine regulation of the growth plate. She has demonstrated that catch-up growth after hypothyroidism is consequent to delayed growth plate senescence. Her current research interests lie in examining the endocrine consequences of proton beam radiation therapy administered for treatment of pediatric brain tumors. She is also looking at the natural history of the endocrine manifestations in adrenal leukodystrophy. Learn more about research at the Pediatric Endocrine Program and Diabetes Center.
