Resident Academic Activities

Katerina NellaKaterina Nella, M.D. (Class of 2011)
I was born and raised in Greece. I finished the Medical School of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and I moved to the United States for postgraduate training. I initially joined Dr. Pipinos lab at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, studying the effects of oxidative stress on mitochondrial function. After completing a 2- year basic science research fellowship, I joined the combined Nebraska- Creighton Universities pediatric residency program. Enjoying training in a solid pediatric program, I found my interest in Endocrinology strengthened by an extensive exposure to various endocrine disorders and syndromes. The role-model influence of the endocrinologists I have worked with has reinforced my decision to pursue an academic career in the field. I was accepted to train at the National Institute of Health- Georgetown Pediatric Endocrinology program in Bethesda, Maryland. I am looking forward to become an excellent endocrine clinician and researcher.
