Description of CVI Expertise

CVI Program Unit(s):
Lipid / Atherosclerosis / CAD / ACS / Prevention

CVI Research Description:
I work in Women's Health. Currently exploring how a premature decline in fertility (reproductive sensesce) may predispose women to cardiovascular disease (CVD) later in life.

I also am exploring the link between decreased ovarian reserve, premature ovarian failure, and premature menopause with links to CVD disease later in life.
