Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Lipids
The Emory Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism, and Lipids at Emory University believes that understanding the molecular and cellular pathophysiology of endocrine and metabolic diseases will lead to improved diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for both inherited and acquired conditions.
The Emory Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism, and Lipids is composed of clinical and basic research faculty with interests in all aspects of endocrinology. Clinical care is delivered at four Emory-affiliated hospitals as well as the Emory Clinic. Ongoing clinical investigations study osteoporosis, pituitary disorders, nutrition, and diabetes.
Emory endocrinologists also perform basic research into osteoporosis, hyperparathyroidism, bone metabolism, gene therapy of diabetes, growth factor physiology, nutrition and neuroendocrinology that is supported by federal grants. The Endocrinology fellowship training program enrolls 4-5 fellows each year and is supported by federal grants as well as hospital funds.
