Dr. Gramatges is Co-Director of the Survivorship Research Program at Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers. The objectives of the Gramatges lab are to uncover genetic risks, such as underlying defects in telomere maintenance, that may predispose children to cancer and cancer therapy-related toxicities as well as late effects. Her research explores these associations using human samples obtained locally and in collaboration with organizations such as the Children’s Oncology Group and the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study. Of particular interest to her lab are biomarkers of aging and frailty, and how these biological factors are related to features of premature, accelerated aging observed in survivors of childhood cancer.
