Research Overview

Dr. Rajabi has an ongoing project to explore the natural history of multiple conditions including the outcomes of adults with inborn errors of metabolism, Bardet-Biedl Syndrome, and Fabry disease. She has also collaborated on research projects related to phenylketonuria (PKU) involving genotype phenotype correlation and new magnetic resonance spectroscopy technology, as well as clinical trials for novel treatments for PKU.

About Farrah Rajabi

Dr. Rajabi obtained her M.D. degree from the University of Toledo College of Medicine in Toledo, OH. Following pediatrics residency at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, NC, she completed a second residency in clinical genetics and a fellowship in medical biochemical genetics at Harvard Medical School. In 2017, she joined the clinical faculty in the division of genetics and genomics. Dr. Rajabi is particularly interested in medical education, previously selected as chief fellow for the Harvard Medical School Genetics Training Program, and now serving as assistant program director. She is a member of the BCH Academy, and she completed the 2016-2017 Rare Disease Research Network Certificate Program through Children’s National Medical Center to train in specific research tools and methods unique to rare diseases.
