Siri Atma Greeley, MD, PhD

A pediatric endocrinologist, Siri Atma Greeley, MD, PhD, sees children with any endocrine disorder or concern, specializing in the treatment of infants, children, and teens with all types of diabetes. He is a member of the multidisciplinary patient care and research team in the University of Chicago Kovler Diabetes Center.

Through basic and clinical research, Dr. Greeley hopes to shed light on the full spectrum of childhood diabetes. His research focuses on how best to classify the diabetes type of each individual patient. Dr. Greeley is particularly interested in monogenic diabetes, which is caused by single gene mutations and is often unrecognized, even though this group of disorders may represent as much as 2-3 percent of all diabetes cases. Dr. Greeley recently designed and implemented the first national Web-based registry of patients with neonatal diabetes, who are more likely to have an underlying monogenic cause.

Dr. Greeley is a member of the Committee on Molecular Metabolism and Nutrition, the Committee on Clinical and Translational Science, and the Diabetes Research and Training Center at the University of Chicago. He has been an invited speaker and presenter at scientific research conferences and symposia worldwide. Dr. Greeley is the recipient of numerous research grants from organizations such as the National Institutes of Health, the American Diabetes Association and the Max Goldenberg Foundation.

Dr. Greeley’s research has been published in numerous medical journals including Nature Medicine, the Journal of Immunology, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Pediatric Diabetes, the Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology, and Diabetes Care.
