Takara Stanley is a clinician in the MGH Pediatric Endocrine Unit and a clinical investigator in the Pediatric Endocrine Unit and Program in Nutritional Metabolism.
Takara Stanley, MD, is a pediatric endocrinologist with particular interests in neuroendocrinology and obesity. She completed pediatric residency at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children (MGHfC) in 2006, and she completed fellowship in pediatric endocrinology at MGHfC in 2009.
My general research interest is the interrelationship between body fat distribution, pituitary hormone dynamics, and metabolic abnormalities such as insulin resistance and dyslipidemia. As a member of the MGH Program in Nutritional Metabolism, I have worked primarily on clinical research investigating abnormalities in growth hormone dynamics resulting from states of visceral obesity, and the relationship of altered growth hormone to other cardiometabolic abnormalities that accompany obesity.
The third-annual Family-Centered Grand Rounds, “The A Team— Building an Effective Healthcare Team,” honed in on the importance of team communication in care.
