Dr. Nadejda Bozadjieva Kramer earned her PhD in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor in 2016 after receiving a Master's Degree in Integrated Biosciences from the University of Minnesota Medical School, Duluth in 2011. She earned her Bachelor's degree in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Minnesota, Duluth in 2009. Dr. Bozadjieva Kramer’s primary research interests lie in the pancreas-gut-liver axis, understanding the roles enterohepatic and nutrient signaling play in obesity, comorbidities (Type 2 diabetes, NAFLD/NASH) and how these change after rapid weight loss (bariatric surgery). These projects employ extensive metabolic techniques including surgical, molecular, behavioral, pharmacological, and physiological expertise in rodent models.
Dr. Bozadjieva Kramer holds appointments at the Ann Arbor Veterans Affairs and the Department of Surgery at Michigan Medicine. She is a recipient of a Veterans Affairs Career Development Award and she has received fellowship and research support from Pediatric Endocrinology Training Program (PETP), Obesity Surgery Scientist Training Program (Department of Surgery), Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR) Program in Translation Science Program, and University of Michigan Center for Gastrointestinal Research (UMCGR).
