Research Interests

Shannon Kelleher’s research interests center around understanding how genetics and dietary factors affect mammary gland biology, lactation, and human milk production and composition. In addition, we strive to understand risk factors for insufficient lactation and use genome-wide approaches to develop novel milk-based biomarkers to prevent and treat common lactation problems such as insufficient milk production and suboptimal milk composition.

To do so, we conduct clinical studies in breastfeeding women to identify novel genetic variations associated with human milk composition and production. Additionally, we use a variety of advanced biochemical and molecular biology techniques in cultured cell models to evaluate the functional relevance of gene variants, miRNAs, and a variety of dietary bioactives on mammary epithelial cell biology.
