Faculty Spotlight: Dr. Iva Miljkovic

Dr. Miljkovic’s major interest is in obesity, adipose tissue deposition, and metabolism. In particular, she studies the epidemiology of ectopic fat deposition, such as in the liver and skeletal muscle, and associated cardiometabolic disorders (i.e. diabetes, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, dyslipidemia, and inflammation).
