Janet Snell-Bergeon, PhD
Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Epidemiology
Dr. Snell-Bergeon's area of interest is the complications of type 1 diabetes. She has made major contributions to understanding the associations of type 1 diabetes with increased risk for cardiovascular disease as an investigator with the Coronary Artery Calcification in Type 1 Diabetes Study, and is currently studying insulin resistance in women with type 1 diabetes in relationship with measures of arterial stiffness in an American Diabetes Association Junior Faculty Award grant. In collaboration with Dr. Marian Rewers and Dr. David Maahs, she is also examining the mechanisms through which hyperglycemia and insulin resistance increase cardiovascular risk in adults with type 1 diabetes. She is collaborating with Dr. Andrew Paterson in Toronto, as well as Drs. Rewers and Maahs at the Barbara Davis Center on a multi-center project to perform a genome wide study of genes associated with diabetic kidney disease. At the Barbara Davis Center, she is also a co-investigator for the Diabetes Autoimmunity Study in the Young (DAISY), with Dr. Marian Rewers, PI, and has contributed to papers with The Environmental Determinants of Type 1 Diabetes (TEDDY) and SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth multi-center studies.
