Ananda Basu, MD, (pronouns: he/him) is the Harrison Professor of Medicine in the UVA Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism. Originally from India, he received his medical degree from Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research in Pondicherry, India, before pursuing endocrinology training at the General Hospital in Birmingham, England. Basu then joined the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where he trained as a clinician-investigator in integrative physiology of diabetes in humans and pursued a clinical fellowship in endocrinology. He joined the Mayo Clinic faculty and rose to the rank of full professor prior to being recruited by UVA in 2017.
At UVA, Basu heads the outpatient advanced diabetes management clinic, which provides patients with type 1 diabetes and insulin-requiring patients with type 2 diabetes easier, faster access to the technological support and clinical expertise they need to manage this chronic disease. This clinic is an extension of UVA’s ongoing work to better control diabetes through advanced technology, cloud based analytics, smooth integration of technological data into the electronic medical records, modern therapeutics and remote monitoring/telemedicine.
Additionally, Basu is the principal investigator of two National Institutes of Health-funded projects designed to help better understand the physiology of type 1 diabetes. He is also working with the UVA Center for Diabetes Technology to develop cloud-based risk analytics to help mitigate risks for both low and high blood sugars in diabetic patients.
In his free time, Basu volunteers with Meals on Wheels and enjoys listening to music and spending time with his wife and two daughters.
