Posted on Wednesday, July 29, 2020

Dr. Taylor Triolo was the recipient of an ARCS award at the University of Colorado School of Medicine where she received her MD in 2013.  This was followed by a pediatric residency at CU (2013-2016) and a pediatric endocrinology fellowship, also at CU (2016-2019).  She is board certified in pediatrics and pediatric endocrinology and is currently an assistant professor at the Anschutz School of Medicine.
Dr. Triolo joined the Pediatric Division on the Anschutz Medical Campus in 2019.  In her practice, she is devoted to the clinical care of children with diabetes and loves the opportunity to work with patients and their families.
Her research interests are focused on the development of islet autoimmunity and beta cell dysfunction in children with type 1 diabetes.  She is on the faculty and a member of the Russ Lab at the Barbara Davis Center (BDC), one of the largest diabetes institutes in the world.  BDC’s research is devoted to prevention, finding a cure, and the most effective treatment of diabetes and associated disorders.  Dr. Triolo is also is a Co-Investigator on the BDC Prevention team and vice president of their medical alumni association.   
In addition, Dr. Triolo collaborates clinically with the Children’s Hospital of Colorado Pediatric Gastroenterology Division to care for children with chronic pancreatitis and islet dysfunction. 
As a medical student a decade ago, Dr. Triolo wrote in her ARCS profile that her career objective was to “to be a pediatric endocrinologist in an academic institution” and she has achieved exactly what she set out to accomplish.  As many of her fellow ARCS alumni do, she enjoys the Colorado outdoor lifestyle:  cycling, skiing, and hiking.
