Clinical Division Faculty





Janet Snell-Bergeon, PhD
Primary Appointment: Associate Professor of Pediatrics & Epidemiology
Co-Head of Clinical Epidemiology


My primary area of interest is complications of type 1 diabetes. As an investigator and current PI of the Coronary Artery Calcification in Type 1 Diabetes (CACTI) Study, I have contributed to understanding the mechanisms through which hyperglycemia and insulin resistance increase cardiovascular risk in type 1 diabetes. I have examined insulin resistance in women with type 1 diabetes in relationship with measures of arterial stiffness in an American Diabetes Association Junior Faculty Award grant. Through an American Diabetes Association Career Development Award, I am examining the effects of estrogens on vascular health. I am a co-investigator on a genome wide study of genes associated with diabetic kidney disease and the Diabetes Autoimmunity Study in the Young (DAISY) and have contributed to papers with The Environmental Determinants of Type 1 Diabetes (TEDDY) and SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth multi-center studies. She leads, with Dr. Klingensmith, the BDC Faculty Development Committee.
