Dr. Weber’s research program is focused on understanding the mechanisms underlying impaired bone health in children with primary and secondary bone disease and using this information to improve clinical care. Current and past projects have included studies in children with type 1 diabetes and Duchenne muscular dystrophy. He is currently working on projects to identify and validate clinically relevant bone health outcomes with the goal of using these measures to improve clinical care using existing therapies and as outcomes in future clinic clinical trials of new and emerging anti-osteoporosis agents. He has specific expertise in the use of dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and has contributed to international guidelines on the application of this technology to pediatric clinical care and research.
