Research Description

Dr. Brown's recent research has focused on new treatment options for type 1 diabetes. She has been a principal investigator on multiple trials focused on type 1 diabetes.
She is currently active in clinical trials conducted within the Center for Diabetes Technology. These research programs are aimed at further identifying factors of glycemic variability in people with type 1 diabetes, particularly glucose changes surrounding exercise, meals and the menstrual cycle. The Center for Diabetes Technology is active in developing automated insulin delivery systems in people with type 1 diabetes. Dr. Brown was the study chair for a randomized-controlled multi-site US trial on automated insulin delivery that ultimately led to FDA approval of a system in current use in the US.

She has previously been a principal investigator on an NIH K23 mentored clinical research award focusing on the effects of lactation on bone physiology.
