Selorm Dei-Tutu, M.D.
Selorm completed her residency training at St. Christopher’s prior to matching to Vanderbilt for fellowship. As a citizen of both Ghana and the U.S., she is focused on the international burden of endocrine disease. She is currently completing her M.P.H. degree. Selected this year as a Fogarty Scholar, she will visit study sites in Ghana developing the groundwork for newborn TSH screening and determining the prevalence of T1D and care plans in the region. She works closely with the Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health as she works to lessen the global burden of endocrine disease.
Erin Cobry, M.D.
Erin completed her residency training at Vanderbilt prior to joining our fellowship program. She has extensive experience in diabetes research, having worked for several years as an investigator at the Barbara Davis Diabetes Center in Colorado. There she focused on diabetes technology and improving care delivery. In fellowship, she is focusing on the interaction between sleep, technology, and overall diabetes wellness. Her work is supported by her competitive selection to a T32 grant in the Department of Pediatrics through which she works with her mentor, Dr. Sarah Jaser.
Kristin Favela, M.D.
Kristin completed residency training at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital prior to joining our fellowship in July 2016. She is interested broadly in diabetes and endocrine regulation. Her research project focuses on the role of hypothalamic inflammation in driving obesity and inhibiting weight loss. She is presently studying the novel hypothesis that bile acids may be useful in ameliorating this inflammation to promote permanent weight loss. This research may identify new regulatory loops that will expand endocrine treatment options for obesity and related health disorders.
