Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, USA
Jennifer Sherr, MD, PhD, is Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Endocrinology) at the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut. She received her BA from Rutgers College and her medical degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick.
Dr. Sherr’s passion for the care of those with type 1 diabetes is personal, as she was diagnosed in 1987. From the time of her diagnosis, she was determined to become a pediatric endocrinologist. While Dr. Sherr always wanted to care for those with type 1 diabetes, during her fellowship at Yale, her eyes were opened to the meaningful impact of clinical research. She then embarked on further training and received her PhD through the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Investigative Medicine Program. This doctoral program is designed to develop the next generation of physician scientists.
Dr. Sherr has been devoted to clinical research for the past 12 years. She is an integral member of the diabetes technology team at Yale, and she has conducted studies of new glucagon formulations for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia. Dr. Sherr has worked on projects with the T1D Exchange and served as the first Junior Pediatric Faculty Member to its steering committee from 2016-2018.
