Dr. Singer is a pediatric endocrinologist, and her research seeks to understand how obesity-induced inflammation progresses to cardiovascular and metabolic diseases like insulin resistance and diabetes. By investigating the mechanisms linking obesity and systemic inflammation, she hopes to identify effective medical and dietary interventions to prevent the diseases associated with pediatric obesity.
