Description of Itmat Expertise

Dr. Kelly studies endocrine complications of chronic pulmonary diseases and glucose intolerance including potential vitamin D-related inflammatory processes in children and adolescents with cystic fibrosis. She is also examining inflammatory processes in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome that may contribute to inflammation and insulin resistance in the pediatric population.
