Dr. Jennifer Sherr is an Instructor in Pediatrics (endocrinology) at Yale University School of Medicine. She attended the University of Medicine and Dentistry New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and subsequently came to Yale Children’s Hospital to complete her pediatric residency.
During her fellowship in endocrinology at Yale University School of Medicine, she was accepted into the Investigate Medicine Program at Yale University Graduate School of Arts & Sciences. The focus of her doctoral thesis was examination of the dysregulated glucagon response early in the course of type 1 diabetes.
Subsequently, her research has focused on artificial pancreas technologies and the use of adjunctive therapy to mitigate postprandial hyperglycemia.
