Biography

    Eliza B. Geer, MD joined the faculty at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in July, 2006 with an appointment in the Division of Endocrinology and a secondary appointment in the Department of Neurosurgery. After graduating from Columbia University, she attended Mount Sinai School of Medicine, graduating with Distinction in Research. She completed her Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, where she became involved in neuroendocrine research, conducting studies on the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and acromegaly. After completing her Residency, she conducted a year of clinical research at Columbia's Obesity Research Center, funded by a NIH T32 grant, where she focused on body composition and appetite in acromegaly. She then completed a fellowship in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Bone Disease at the Mount Sinai Medical Center, graduating in 2006.

Research

 

Dr. Geer's clinical and research interests include pituitary diseases and neuroendocrinology. She is the principal investigator of a number of studies investigating body composition, adipose tissue regulation, appetite, and long term outcomes in patients with Cushing's Disease and other pituitary diseases; these studies are funded by a NIH K23 award. She was awarded the Dr. Harold and Golden Lamport Research Award for Clinical Research in 2012, and the Mount Sinai Endocrinologist of the Year award for outstanding service to the Icahn School of Medicine and Mount Sinai Hospital in 2013.
