Karen D. Corbin, PhD, RD
Investigator at the Translational Research Institute
Dr. Corbin is an Investigator at the Translational Research Institute of Metabolism and Diabetes. Her program of research focuses on enterohepatic metabolism and the mechanisms that drive individual susceptibility to metabolic diseases such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), diabetes and obesity.
Dr. Corbin came to the TRI-MD after a 3-year term as a Research Assistant Professor at UNC Chapel Hill, Gillings School of Global Public Health, Department of Nutrition. Dr. Corbin earned her doctorate degree in molecular medicine at the University of South Florida College of Medicine in 2008. She became a registered dietitian in 1998 after completing her dietetic internship at the James A. Haley Veteran’s Hospital in Tampa, FL. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition and Food Science in 1997 at Florida State University.
Dr. Corbin’s research portfolio includes both investigator-initiated and industry clinical-translational studies focused on novel pathogenic mechanisms and therapeutics. Her work is highly innovative and transdisciplinary and has the potential to lead to important advances in prevention and treatment strategies for common metabolic diseases.
