Biography :

Dr. Bredella is Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School and a musculoskeletal radiologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) where she serves as the Director of Musculoskeletal Research. She received her MD degree from the University of Hamburg, Germany in 1997. After a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Osteoporosis and Arthritis Research Group (OARG) in the Department of Radiology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), she completed a residency in diagnostic radiology at UCSF where she also served as Chief Resident.

She pursued a fellowship in musculoskeletal imaging and interventions at MGH. After completing fellowship training in 2005, she joined the faculty of MGH and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Bredella established a multidisciplinary clinical research program in the area of metabolic imaging that combines innovative translational, clinical, and outcomes research.

Her research focuses on the effects of different fat depots on bone metabolism in states of under- and overnutrition. Dr. Bredella has developed new imaging techniques to quantify brown adipose tissue, intramyocellular lipids (IMCL), intrahepatic lipids, and muscle mitochondrial function and examined their effects on bone, insulin resistance and cardiovascular risk in subjects with obesity, insulin resistance, growth hormone disorders, and anorexia nervosa (AN). Since joining the faculty at MGH, she has been continuously grant funded as principle investigator by the NIH.
