Tenured Professor of Pediatric Neurology and Neurogenetics Rose Mary Boustani has spent decades at AUB and Duke University tracking down the individual molecules, genes, and cells that cause rare childhood and adolescent diseases that had long been seen as incurable. She explains how she and her colleagues achieved several breakthroughs that have improved and prolonged the lives of many children, and patented several discoveries on the way. Her next frontier at AUM Medical Center is how we can best respond to autism, while also researching and testing new drugs.
