Research Interests
With more than twenty years of experience in clinical medicine and research in endocrinology and obesity medicine, Dr. Sibley has conducted human clinical and translational research studies with a focus on obesity and metabolic syndrome in various populations. She completed her undergraduate and medical degrees at the University of Tennessee, her internship/residency training at Washington University-Barnes Hospital, and fellowships in nephrology and endocrinology, as well as an MPH/Epidemiology concentration, at the University of Washington. Her obesity-related research career began with a K23 involving central obesity and elevated albumin excretion in type 1 diabetes. Over the years her translational and clinical research experience has included smaller detailed patient-oriented studies of obesity-related physiology, both cross-sectional and under weight loss conditions, and collaboration in larger epidemiologic cohort studies including populations such as the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial / Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications (DCCT/EDIC) cohort. Her prior patient-oriented research and clinical experiences have led her into work on appetitive control in collaboration with colleagues in behavioral health. She is studying the effects of neuromodulation as a tool for enhancing neuroplasticity and weight loss in individuals with obesity. Dr. Sibley is committed to finding innovative approaches for treatment of obesity and its comorbidities.
