Research Grand Rounds: Toward a Precision Approach to Gestational Diabetes

Date Fri, Jan 8
Time 12: 00 PM - 1: 00 PM
Location Zoom


This month's Research Grand Rounds features Camille E. Powe, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard. Dr. Powe will discuss "Toward a Precision Approach to Gestational Diabetes".

Camille Powe is Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard and co-directs the Diabetes in Pregnancy Program at Massachusetts General Hospital. A board-certified endocrinologist, trained at Harvard, Brigham and Women’s, and Mass General, her discipline-spanning research is supported by awards from the NIDDK and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Her research has included important contributions focused on vitamin D, kidney disease, preeclampsia, epidemiology, and health disparities but has its major current focus on glycemic regulation during pregnancy and in women with gestational diabetes. Dr. Powe has identified mechanistically-distinct dysglycemic phenotypes and genotype- associations in women with GDM, leading to improved understanding of glucose regulation across pregnancy with important implications for improving diagnosis, therapy, and clinical outcomes.


Research Grand Rounds are sponsored by the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) and MedStar Health Research Institute to bring together our diverse clinical and research communities to share research that spans disciplines and stages of translation to improve individual and community health.
