Principle Investigator

Stephen Stone, MD

Instructor in Pediatrics, Endocrinology and Diabetes

Stephen Stone, MD is a graduate of the Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in North Chicago, Illinois. After earning his medical degree, he traveled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to complete his residency in general pediatrics at the Medical College of Wisconsin / Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin program. From there, Stone moved to St. Louis, Missouri to complete his fellowship training in pediatric endocrinology at Washington University School of Medicine / St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Stone joined the faculty at Washington University in 2016, where he practices pediatric endocrinology. He is board certified in both general pediatrics and pediatric endocrinology.

During this fellowship training, Stone worked in the lab of Fumihiko Urano, MD, PhD. There he studied Wolfram syndrome, a rare genetic form of diabetes. This work inspired Stone to realize the power of modern genetics and molecular biology in the study of rare diseases. Now that Stone is starting his independent research program, he hopes to apply similar principles of genetics and precision medicine towards other rare diseases. With the guidance of Dr. David Ornitz, MD, PhD, Stone has shed light on a rare syndrome of extreme insulin resistance, insulin-mediated pseudoacromegaly.

Stone also has an interest in the interface of diabetes and technology. He is interested in studying mobile technologies, insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitors, and closed-loop algorithms. He promotes concepts of patient centered design to the care of diabetes and other endocrine diseases.
