Ronald T Ackermann

Professor of Medicine (General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics), Medical Social Sciences and Medicine (Endocrinology)

My work focuses on ways to improve health and healthcare through the efficient coordination of health promotion and disease prevention activities across healthcare and community settings. I am considered a national expert in pragmatic research and natural experiments to improve the prevention and control of diabetes and other chronic conditions. My additional interests include advancing health equity, eliminating health disparities, healthcare provider interventions, quality improvement, cost effectiveness analysis, behavioral economics, and strategies for engaging community members and policy...

William L Lowe, Jr

Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology)

The primary area of interest of the Lowe lab is maternal metabolism during pregnancy, fetal growth and their interaction. Genetic-, genomics- and metabolomics-based technologies together with a multi-ancestry, population-based cohort of mothers and their offspring from the Hyperglycemia and Adverse Pregnancy Outcome Study are being used to pursue these areas of interest.

Grazia Aleppo

My primary clinical interest is Diabetes, especially Diabetes and Technology and the application of the use of Insulin pump Therapy and real Time Continuous glucose monitoring sensor therapy to Diabetes type 1 and Diabetes type 2. My primary research interest is Diabetes

Robert J Sobel

Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology)

I have devoted my career to maintaining a state--of-the-art but individualized approach to primary care medicine, endocrinology, and, most specifically, the care of patients with all forms of diabetes. My main area of academic focus is to advocate for a minimization of bureaucratic obstacles that interfere with the primacy of the patient-physician relationship.

Lisa M Neff

Associate Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology)

My primary research is designed to investigate factors which may be involved in the process of metabolic adaptation to weight loss in individuals who have become overweight or obese. This adaptive process, which leads to a reduction in energy expenditure, increased hunger, and decreased satiety or fullness, is thought to contribute to the high rates of recidivism seen with obesity treatments. Another area of interest is nutritional interventions for obesity-related metabolic disorders. In addition, I serve as an investigator for multi-center trials of new therapeutic options for the treatment ...

Eve D Bloomgarden

Assistant Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology)

My focus is the management of patients with thyroid, pituitary, and metabolic bone disorders. This includes patients with thyroid cancer, pituitary adenomas, hyperprolactinemia, autoimmune thyroid disorders (Graves' disease), thyroid disease in pregnancy, osteoporosis, and parathyroid problems. I utilize real-time thyroid/parathyroid ultrasound in the office.
