Dr Maria New


Over the past half century, Dr. Maria I. New has earned a reputation as one of the nation's leading pediatric endocrinologists. Her studies of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH)-a deficiency in the adrenal system that causes gender ambiguity in females and precocious sexual development in males-has led to treatments to correct the disorder before the baby is born. Her groundbreaking identification of a new form of hypertension, "apparent mineralcorticoid excess," has resulted in a new area of receptor biology. Dr. New has been President of both the Endocrine Society and the Lawson Wilkins Pediatric Endocrine Society and was elected membership in the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1996. She has been awarded the MERIT Award of the U.S. Public Health Service of the National Institute of Child Health and Development recognizing her research in adrenal disorders, the Dale Medal of the British Endocrine Society, the General Clinical Research Center Award for Excellence in Clinical Research, the Robert H. Williams Distinguished Leadership Award in Endocrinology. Dr. New conducted a study in collaboration with Dr. Dennis Lo of the Chinese University in Hong Kong to successfully use non-invasive prenatal diagnosis to identify affected female fetuses earlier in pregnancy than what is currently possible by invasive techniques.
