Clinical Research Studies
Physicians at the Neuroendocrine and Pituitary Tumor Clinical Center at Massachusetts General Hospital are conducting several exciting research studies aimed at understanding and addressing medical issues related to pituitary disorders and learning more about the mechanisms of anorexia nervosa and applying novel treatments that will help improve future clinical treatments.
Our goal is to learn and create novel treatments that will help improve clinical care for patients with neuroendocrine disorders and neuroendocrine malignancies. Research at the Neuroendocrine and Pituitary Clinical Center at Mass General is divided into four major research areas including:
- Pathogenesis and regulation of human pituitary adenomas
- Pathophysiology of neuroendocrine disorders
- Relationship between nutritional disorders and neuroendocrine factors
- Development of novel therapies for patients with pituitary and hypothalamic disorders
