Detailed Biography:

Katrina M. Dipple, MD, PhD has always been interested in biochemistry and medicine. She has a BS in Biochemistry from Indiana University in Bloomington. During her undergraduate education she became interested in genetics and decided to go to graduate school. Dr. Dipple did a combined MD/PhD degree at Indiana University School of Medicine. Her PhD is in biochemistry and molecular biology. After finishing graduate school, she came to UCLA for a pediatric residency and postdoctoral fellowship in Genetics. Her career has focused on combining basic research and clinical work. Since joining the faculty, her work has focused on understanding the complexity of genetic disorders including the role of fat metabolism in type 2 diabetes mellitus.
