Dr. Nivedita Patni received her medical degree from All-India Institute of Medical Sciences in India, and completed her pediatric residency at Miami Children’s Hospital before coming to UT Southwestern Medical Center for Pediatric Endocrinology fellowship. Her research interests are focused towards lipodystrophy and genetic dyslipidemias. She has described a novel syndrome of generalized lipodystrophy associated with pilocytic astrocytoma, which was recently published in Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. She continues her research work at the Center for Human Nutrition at UT Southwestern Medical Center to determine the etiology of this syndrome. She is also working on determining genetic basis of lipid disorders in children and investigating the genotype-phenotype relationships in these patients. She designed a study to determine Genetic Bases of type 1 hyperlipoproteinemia (T1HLP) and received a Service Package Grant from the Center for Translational Medicine at UTSW Medical Center, Dallas, Texas. She is also spearheading a clinical trial to evaluate the Efficacy of Orlistat for the Treatment of T1HLP.
