Professor Matthew Warman
Dr. Warman is the Harriet M. Peabody Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Genetics at Harvard Medical School. He attended college at Brown University and medical school at Cornell University. While in medical school, he performed research with Dr. Adele Boskey at The Hospital for Special Surgery. After medical school he trained in Pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital in Washington, D.C., in Genetics at the Children’s Hospital in Boston, and he performed post-doctoral research with Professor Bjorn R. Olsen at Harvard Medical School. In 1994, Dr. Warman established an independent laboratory and clinical program in the Department of Genetics and Center for Human Genetics at Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals of Cleveland. In 2006, he returned to Boston to become director of the Orthopaedic Research Laboratories at Boston Children’s Hospital. Dr. Warman is also an investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
The patients and families, who Dr. Warman has come to know through his clinical work as a pediatrician and geneticist, have often served as the impetus for his research. In addition to working with patients and families, members of Dr. Warman’s lab try to understand and treat human disease by studying cultured cells, purified proteins, and other organisms. Having benefited from superb mentoring throughout his career, Dr. Warman enjoys introducing students (from high school to professional school) to the importance and excitement of Human Genetics. He is proud to have mentored students at all levels, who have gone on to become excellent scientists, physicians, and educators.
