    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our lab is interested in understanding molecular processes that underlie aging and age-associated pathologies in mammals. We focus on a family of genes, the SIRTs, which regulate stress resistance and lifespan in lower organisms such as yeast, worms, and flies. In mammals, we recently uncovered a number of ways in which SIRT factors may contribute to cellular and organismal aging by regulating resistance to various forms of stress. We have now begun to characterize the molecular mechanisms by which these SIRT factors function. In particular, we are interested in how SIRT factors regulate chromatin, the molecular structure in which the DNA of mammalian genomes is packaged, and how such functions may link genome maintenance to stress resistance and aging.

    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.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Investigation of the epidemiology of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) at a public hospital. All cases of DKA at SCVMC occurring over the past 5 years have been identified. Of the 480 cases of DKA, about 1/3 are in Type II diabetics, and 2/3 in Type I diabetics. We are exploring the causes of DKA in the two groups.
