I earned my bachelor’s degree in molecular biochemistry and biochemistry at Yale University and medical degree at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. I completed my residency training in pediatrics and fellowship training in pediatric endocrinology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), and joined the faculty in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania. In 2002 I returned to Yale to focus my research on the continuous glucose sensors and insulin pumps toward the development of an artificial pancreas. I am the Principal Investigator of several NIH- and JDRF- funded artificial pancreas projects. My most recent projects include large-scale clinical trials in automated insulin delivery (artificial pancreas), development of new automated insulin delivery systems specifically designed for young patients, and the studies to characterize the effects of diabetes on the young developing brain. In 2006 I earned Yale’s Mae Gailani Award for Outstanding Clinical Care & Research, and in 2009 I received the Dream Award from the Greater New Haven Chapter of the JDRF. In 2011 I was awarded, along with other principal investigators in the JDRF Continuous Glucose Monitoring Study Group, the Mary Tyler Moore and S. Robert Levine, MD Excellence in Clinical Research Award.
