Dr. Fried is Professor and Director of Translational Adipose Biology and Obesity in the Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism Institute. She earned an A.B. in Biology from Barnard College (1974), a M.S. in Human Nutrition from the Institute of Human Nutrition, Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons and a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry from Columbia University (1980). After post-doctoral work in Endocrinology at Emory University, and in Lipid Biochemistry at the Medical College of Pennsylvania, she returned to NYC to become a Research Associate at the New York Obesity Center. From 1986-1990, she was an Assistant Professor in the Laboratory of Human Behavior and Metabolism at Rockefeller University, followed by faculty positions at Rutgers University and the University of Maryland School of Medicine. At Maryland she was the founding director of a NIDDK-funded Clinical Nutrition Research Center. From 2009-2016 Dr. Fried was a Professor at Medicine and Biochemistry at the Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM). She was also the Director of the Graduate Program in Nutrition and Metabolism, and Director of the NIH NIDDK-funded Boston Obesity and Nutrition Research during this time. Her work has been well-funded by the NIH and the American Diabetes Association, among others, for the past 25 years.
