Connecting Research, Education, and Patient Care
Our Division conducts basic (laboratory) and clinical research related to diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis/metabolic bone disease, nutrition, and cardiovascular disease. Current research includes a study of the effects of dietary plant and dairy
derived bioactive lipids on gut microbiota eubiosis, glucose homeostasis regulation, and aging; treatment of diabetes through a smartphone app or a web portal; and research on glucose measurements in pregnant women.
Our faculty serve as mentors and educators to learners at all levels, from high school students to graduate and medical students and from residents and fellows to community physicians.
Through the UVM Medical Center, we provide consultative and ongoing care for patients in Vermont and upstate New York, bringing these patients current, evidence-based treatment for their endocrine disorders.
