Dr. Brianne Lewis joined the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine in July 2021 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Foundational Medical Studies. She teaches biochemistry for M1 and M2 students.

Dr. Lewis received her B.S in Biochemistry and Chemical Biology from Wayne State University in 2013. Her undergraduate work focused on thermodynamics of targeted siRNA sequences. She continued her work as a doctoral student earning her PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2019. During her graduate work she investigated the mitochondrial iron-sulfur cluster assembly complex as it relates to Friedreich’s Ataxia and iron dysregulation. She also worked collaboratively at the Stanford Synchrotron where she collected X-ray data to characterize metalloprotein binding sites. Dr. Lewis was awarded a trainee position from a NIH-T32 from the Detroit Cardiovascular Training Program which funded her research efforts. As a postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Lewis joined the Dept. of Biomedical Engineering where she investigated protein stability in commercial insulin formulations and studied how inflammation contributes to early failure of automated insulin delivery systems
