Dr. Manning is an Instructor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, an Associated Scientist at Program in Medical and Population Genetics at Broad Institute, and an Assistant Investigator at Clinical Translational Epidemiology Unit at Mass General.

Dr. Manning is a statistical geneticits with an established focus on glycemic traits and a recent focus on integrative analyses of whole genome sequence data. She has been exploring the link between genetic associations and phenotype refinement since 2005. Her Lab studies the molecular and mechanistic basis of insulin resistance and obesity and is known for developing statistical strategies for translational epidemiology using whole genome sequence association studies, physiological and molecular studies in humans and integrative analytics, with the overarching goal to understand the relationship between Genes, Environment and Disease and to foster a stimulating and interdisciplinary research environment with local and international collaborators on a range of projects.

Dr. Manning earned her PhD from Boston University.
