As part of her academic appointment, Dr. Fishman has conducted research studies on evaluating biomarkers, chemicals that can be detected by blood tests, to identify patients with diabetes who may be at higher risk of cardiovascular events. In addition, she has spearheaded projects to improve physician and nurse empathy towards patients with diabetes, and on the use of continuous glucose monitors in hospitalized patients.
