Biography Summary

Margalit Rosenkranz, MD, joined the Division of Pediatric Rheumatology at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh in 2004. She brings a strong background in research focused on developing a deeper understanding of the immunogenetics of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and other rheumatic diseases.

Dr. Rosenkranz earned a bachelor's degree in biology at the University of Pittsburgh in 1994 and her medical degree at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 1998. She completed her pediatric residency at New York University Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital in 2001 and completed a pediatric rheumatology fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery and Weill Medical College of Cornell University in New York in 2004.

At Children's Hospital, Dr. Rosenkranz's research has focused on proteomics in JRA to identify specific protein profiles of a patient. By identifying the proteomic "fingerprint" of a patient and differentially expressed proteins in the various subtypes of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, she is seeking to determine whether the serum proteome signatures vary among the different forms of JRA. Proteomic signatures also may be useful in identifying patients who are more or less likely to respond to specific treatments. She received an advanced fellowship training program award from Children's Hospital to help support her research activities.
