Ingraham’s dissection of sex differences in the brain and peripheral tissues has defined molecular pathways that control female physiology. Her group provided a mechanistic account for the preovulatory activity spike, underscoring the impact of central oestrogen signalling in counteracting sedentary behaviour, as featured in the NYT Science Section (10/26/21). Other collaborative studies include understanding how sex differences in fat storage and visceral pain can influence fatty liver and gut disorders, respectively.

Ingraham is a member of the American Academy of Arts/Sciences and the NAS. She directs the UCSF IRACDA Program, an NIH-funded program promoting diversity in our nation’s biomedical research enterprise. Recent honours include the EB Astwood Basic Science Award and the Transatlantic Medal in Endocrinology.
