Dr. Singer’s research is related to the pathogenesis of obesity-induced inflammation and the progression from this chronic inflammatory state to insulin resistance and diabetes.
Dr. Singer received her undergraduate degree at Johns Hopkins University. She then completed her medical school training at the University of Michigan. After medical school, Dr. Singer completed pediatrics residency and fellowship in pediatric endocrinology at University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. During her fellowship training she received funding from the Endocrine Fellows Foundation as well as the Pediatric Endocrine Society to support her research. She also received a Society for Pediatric Research Fellow Basic Research Award and presented her research at the Japanese Pediatric Society. In 2012 after completing fellowship training Dr. Singer joined the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Pediatric Endocrinology at the University of Michigan as Clinical Lecturer. She has an interest in understanding the cellular and endocrine dynamics leading from energy intake to an increase in adipose tissue mass and adipose tissue inflammation. Using a mouse model of diet-induced obesity she has been investigating how high fat diet alters hematopoietic stem cell and myeloid precursors contributing to systemic obesity-induced metainflammation and metabolic disease.
