Carrie L. Heike, MD, MS, is an attending physician at Seattle Children's Hospital and associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine. She completed her clinical fellowship in the Craniofacial Center at Seattle Children's Hospital in 2006. Her research focuses on the genetic epidemiology of craniofacial conditions.
Dr. Heike is currently a co-principal investigator on a multi-center study to investigate the etiology and clinical outcomes for individuals with craniofacial microsomia. She also has a special interest in working with children with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome and co-directs the Seattle Children's 22q Clinic. She is investigating the genetic variation in children with this syndrome and aims to understand whether this variation contributes to the development of craniofacial anomalies in 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. She is also using three-dimensional imaging combined with anthropometry to quantify the craniofacial variation in conditions that affect craniofacial structures.
