Research Focus

Dr. Underland's research focus during her fellowship training was in diabetes and hypoglycemia. Her primary research project looked at postprandial blood sugars with Sitagliptin in an insulin-only closed loop (artificial pancreas) setting. She has also been involved in some of the diabetes medication trials at Montefiore. In addition, she presently has a quality improvement project which looks at non-diabetic hypoglycemia at CHAM. She plans on continuing artificial pancreas research as well as researching diabetic complications in pediatric patients.
