Emily J Gallagher, MD
- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Medicine, Endocrinology, Diabetes and Bone Disease
Specialty:Endocrine, Diabetes and Bone Diseases
Dr. Emily J. Gallagher earned her MB BCh BAO (MD equivalent) with honors from University College Dublin, Ireland and her PhD in Physiology from the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland. She is a member of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (MRCPI), is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology. Dr. Gallagher trained in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology at the Mater Miseriordiae University Hospital, Dublin, and completed her postgraduate training in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology at Mount Sinai. She was Chief Fellow in Endocrinology, and was subsequently appointed Assistant Professor of Medicine Endocrinology, Diabetes and Bone Diseases. As a fellow she was awarded the Endocrine Fellows Foundation, Fellows Development Research Grant in 2010. In 2014, she received a K08 Clinician-Scientist Career Development Award from the NIH / NCI to study the role of hyperlipidemia in breast cancer progression. In 2016 she received a Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai Junior Scientist Research Award to study the role of lipid metabolites in cancer. In 2017 she received a Mount Sinai Department of Medicine Junior Faculty Translational Collaborative Research Pilot Award to study the mechanisms underlying the development of endocrine immune related adverse events in oncology patients treated with immune checkpoint inhibitors. She received the Harold and Golden Lamport Research Award in 2017.
