Dr. Page’s research program has two major components: (i) neuroendocrine regulation of appetite, feeding behavior, and glucose homeostasis; (ii) intergenerational transmission of obesity and diabetes. Her research has been recognized by Outstanding Investigator Awards from the Endocrine Society (2012), Western American Federation for Medical Research (2012), the American Diabetes Association Pathway Accelerator Award (2013), the American Heart Association (2014), and the Western Society for Clinical Investigation (2019). She has received external grant funding from the National Institutes of Health, the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
Her long-term vision is to identify mechanisms and markers of disease in people at high risk for diabetes, whether related to in utero exposure to maternal metabolic disorders or other postnatal environmental influences, and to develop at test interventions to prevent diabetes and its related complications.
