Get to know Pediatric Endocrinologist Dr. Adebola M. Giwa, who serves patients in Baltimore, Maryland.

Dr. Giwa is a fellowship-trained pediatric endocrinologist at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, a nationally ranked, pediatric acute care children’s teaching hospital located in Baltimore, Maryland. 

Involved in both clinical and bench research, his clinical research involves multi-center clinical trials utilizing islet cell transplants to re-establish insulin production and other beta cell function in people with established Type 1 diabetes. His bench research is focused on identifying unconventional lymphocytes and studying their role in the pathogenesis of Type 1 diabetes to possibly target them for future immunotherapies. 

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Giwa earned his Bachelor of Science degree with a Supplementary Major in Spanish at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana and his medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He later completed his residency in pediatrics at the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital before beginning his fellowship in pediatric endocrinology at John Hopkins Children’s Center, where he currently works as a physician-scientist. 

With a fondness for mentoring and service work, Dr. Giwa enjoys going on international mission trips, participating in mentoring programs, and sponsoring a local Head Start school for low-income families. He has received a number of awards for this work from his alma mater and medical institution for service and leadership.

Pediatric endocrinology is a medical subspecialty dealing with disorders of the endocrine glands, such as variations of physical growth and sexual development in childhood, diabetes, and many more. Pediatric endocrinologists, depending upon the age range of the patients they treat, care for patients from infancy to late adolescence and young adulthood. They treat type 1 and type 2 diabetes, growth disorders, pubertal abnormalities, obesity, differences of sex development, bone and mineral disturbances, hypoglycemia, and other disorders relating to the adrenal, parathyroid, thyroid, and pituitary glands.
