Jacqueline Lonier, MD, Endocrine Fellow
I received my BS from Yale University and my MD from Columbia University. I completed my residency in internal medicine at NYU.
During my residency, I assisted with projects in the Diabetes Research Program. These projects investigated mechanisms of amylin-induced pancreatic beta cell toxicity and effects of soluble RAGE in a mouse model of diabetes.
Following my residency I worked for a year as a hospitalist at NYU. I began my endocrinology fellowship in 2013. I am now in my second year of the fellowship and am re-joining the lab. My project will focus on elucidating cell signaling pathways involved in amylin-induced beta cell toxicity. In particular we hope to further define the relationship between RAGE activation and the Akt pathway, which is involved in beta cell proliferation.
