    Vance L. Albaugh, MD, PhD, is a surgeon-scientist investigator and senior resident in general surgery at Vanderbilt University who has completed dedicated research training in metabolism and bariatric surgery within the Section of Surgical Sciences at Vanderbilt University Medical Center ("Mechanisms of Bile Acid Signaling and Metabolism following Gastric Bypass", F32DK103474). He works with the Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Team at Vanderbilt to better understand the metabolic and hormonal changes associated with bariatric surgery, with an emphasis on the weight loss-independent effects on insulin sensitivity/diabetes, gastrointestinal tract hormonal signaling, and resolution of obesity/diabetes co-morbidities. As a surgeon-scientist trainee, he also has interests in graduate medical education, surgical innovation, biostatistical analysis and reproducible research.
