 Biography
Research Interest :

Her areas of research interests are psychoneuroendocrinology. During the period of her residency in endocrinology, she realized how important the mental function is when taking care of patients with obesity and diabetes. So, in her PhD course, she demonstrated how neural peptides which regulate energy balance also modulate mood and memory/learning by using animal behavior and rat primary neuronal cultures. Specifically, she study the mechanism of mental disorders associate with obesity. She am also interested in reward circuit and its corroboration with memory/learning and mood which is also important in body weight regulation. The long-term goal is to build a liaison therapy for weight management

Dr. Elizabeth Ryan is the first generation in the USA as her family is from Kerala, South India. Prior to entering graduate school at the University of Rochester Medical Center in the field of molecular toxicology, Her work experiences contributed to her scientific research interests on a local and global scale. As an educator for HawkWatch International, my main objective was to create education programs to the public on how Birds of Prey are environmental barometers of human health. During her service with the U.S. Peace Corps in Nepal, She conducted several trainings in conjunction with women’s health initiatives geared towards improving hygiene and nutrition for disease prevention and reducing environmental exposures. She also conducted ecological and human health risk assessments as well as drafted/audited EPA Toxicological Profile reports while working at Tetra Tech NUS and consulting for Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Engineering (ORISE). She discovered that her strengths and passion to address major public health issues, specifically those regarding immunity and cancer were through hypothesis-driven research, and thus sought out postdoctoral training with a NCI Cancer Control and Prevention fellowship to translate laboratory findings of “reduced humoral immune responses by NSAIDs” to vaccine trials in the clinic.

Dr. Hamdy is the Medical Director of the Obesity Clinical Program, at Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. His clinical research focuses on the short- and long-term effects of lifestyle modification on metabolic and cardiovascular risk factors, body fat distribution and inflammation markers in obese individuals with diabetes.  Dr. Hamdy and colleagues’ research led to the first discovery that obese adults who lost 7% of their initial weight had significant improvement of their vascular endothelial function. This improvement may eventually prevent progression of atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease. Dr. Hamdy is a co-investigator of 2 landmark studies; the National Diabetes Prevention Program and the Look AHEAD (Action for Health in Diabetes) Study.  He developed the “Weight Achievement and Intensive Treatment-Why WAIT?” program and the YOU-Turn program, the world’s first clinical practice weight management programs for obese patients with diabetes. Why WAIT showed long-term significant improvement in diabetes control, lipid, kidney and liver profiles together with significant improvement in quality of life and physical fitness. Participants were also able to cut their diabetes medications by -50%.
