Precision Medicine in Diabetes

Rochelle Naylor, M.D. | Assistant Professor, Biological Sciences Division, Department of Pediatrics, University of Chicago Medicine

Dr. Naylor is a pediatric endocrinologist, specializing in the care of children and adolescents with diabetes and other endocrine disorders, including disorders of growth and puberty, thyroid disease and adrenal disease.

An active researcher, Dr. Naylor focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of monogenic diabetes -- a rare form of diabetes caused by genetic mutations. She studies a subset of monogenic diabetes known as maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY). She aims to determine the prevalence of MODY, and establish treatment protocols. As a part of this work, Dr. Naylor maintains the MODY section of the Kovler Monogenic Diabetes Registry, a nationwide database of individuals affected by this rare form of diabetes.

In addition to her roles as a clinician and researcher, Dr. Naylor is a dedicated educator, teaching medical students, interns and residents about the management of endocrine disease.

The Summit is co-sponsored by the Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists
