Dr. Germain-Lee has a distinguished history of caring for children and adults from around the world with all types of bone disorders, most notably Albright hereditary osteodystrophy (AHO), a condition including two subtypes termed pseudohypoparathyroidism type 1a and pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism.
Over the past two decades, she has built extensive clinical and research programs focused on AHO and currently follows the largest population of these patients worldwide. Her clinical and research interests also include other rare disorders leading to bone and/or endocrine abnormalities such as osteogenesis imperfecta, skeletal dysplasias, and Sturge-Weber Syndrome. Her goal is to develop new treatments to improve the overall health and quality of life for patients with these disorders and to translate scientific investigations in her laboratory into therapeutic applications.
Outside of Connecticut Children’s and UConn Health, Dr. Germain-Lee serves as Vice President of the Human Growth Foundation to help children with growth disorders through advocacy, education, and research.
