Dr. Fourman’s research explores mechanisms of ectopic fat accumulation and downstream pathology in the liver and in the heart. She has published on the manner by which redressing ectopic fat deposition through administration of a hypothalamic hormone analogue may improve end-organ function in special populations. Her latest research interests include mechanisms by which epigenetic imprinting may predispose HIV-exposed but uninfected infants to metabolic complications later in life. Her work has been published in Lancet HIV, Journal of Clinical Investigation Insight and Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. She has received a K23 Career Development Award, a KL2 MeRIT grant from the Harvard Catalyst, the John Potts Pilot Award from Mass General's Endocrinology Division, and a Pilot Translational Research Grant from Mass General’s Department of Medicine. Clinically, Dr. Fourman manages patients with complex metabolic and neuroendocrine diseases, and directs the Metabolic Disorders Conference.
