Instructor, Medicine - Endocrinology, Gerontology, & Metabolism
Bio Dr. Craig?s research interests center on examining the roles of incretin hormones in glucose metabolism, and the development and application of incretin-targeted therapies for improved glucose homeostasis. In particular, Dr. Craig?s clinical research focuses on the incretin gut hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 and its role in mediating hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia conditions, including post-bariatric hypoglycemia (PBH). Ongoing investigations further examine potential mechanisms mediating PBH, as well as the cognitive, cardiovascular, and quality of life implications of recurrent severe hypoglycemia. Dr. Craig obtained her M.D. at Brown University School of Medicine and completed her postdoctoral research fellowship at Stanford University School of Medicine in the lab of Dr. Tracey McLaughlin.
