Ann is currently conducting research in the Nutrition and Skeletal Health Laboratory under the direction of Dr. Joseph Kindler. Ann’s research focuses on identifying the role of nutrition and gut-derived incretin hormones on bone metabolism in cystic fibrosis (CF)-related bone disease, and using various bone imaging techniques including dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and high resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography to help define the gut-bone axis.
