Dr. Lisa Nachtigall is the Co- Director of the Neuroendocrine Clinical Center at Massachusetts General Hospital and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Her primary clinical focus is pituitary disorders and the treatment of patients with acromegaly. She has extensive clinical experience in neuroendocrine disorders and has published clinical research papers in this area. She has received awards for teaching and clinical investigation.
My study of how 100 patients with acromegaly came to diagnosis targeted education on this rare disease to professionals who most likely encounter it. I investigated a long acting somatostatin analog with a novel delivery system. I have contributed to several reviews on acromegaly and hyperprolactinemia and edited chapters on these topics. I have created an acromegaly database, including longitudinal data in over 350 patients, which will improve clinical practice strategies and serve as a resource for clinical investigation and as a model for database construction. I received an investigator initiated award to study long term treatment of acromegaly with somatostatin analogs.
