Dr. David A. Stevenson's research focuses on disorders of the RAS/MAPK pathway (e.g. NF1, Noonan, CFC, and Costello syndrome). He is working on understanding the impact of RAS signaling on the musculoskeletal system. Through multi-disciplinary collaborations he is utilizing genomic approaches to identify somatic events and modifiers in the RASopathies. He is also involved in identifying outcome measures for use in clinical trials for the associated orthopedic manifestations. Other areas of research involve vascular anomalies, Prader-Willi syndrome, and hypophosphatasia.
