Upcoming Diabetes Webinar Event

Title:SGLT-2 Inhibitors in Type 2 Diabetes: Protecting the Kidneys and Heart
Presenter: Dr. Amnon Schlegel, MD, PhD

Bio: Dr. Schlegel was a trainee in the Medical Scientist Training Program of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine where he received his M.D. and Ph.D. He was an intern and resident physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, MA, and was a Fellow in Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He was a clinical fellow in the Diabetes, Endocrine, and Metabolism Training Program at the University of California San Francisco, where he was subsequently a post-doctoral associate in the laboratory of Professor Didier Y.R. Stainier, Ph.D., in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics. It was there that he established a zebrafish molecular genetic system for studying lipid metabolism.

In 2010, Dr. Schlegel was recruited to the University of Utah as an investigator in the Molecular Medicine Program and as an Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine and Biochemistry. He was promoted to Associate Professor with award of tenure in 2016. His laboratory uses model organisms (zebrafish and mice) to identify and characterize new genes that participate in lipid metabolism. The long-term goal of this work is to identify novel therapeutic targets for treating obesity, type 2 diabetes, and lipid disorders. He sees patients with all general endocrine and metabolic disorders at the Utah Diabetes and Endocrinology Center and the Salt Lake City Veterans Affairs Medical Center Endocrine Clinic.
