Our observational and clinical trial research focuses on cardiovascular, cardio-renal, kidney, and metabolic conditions and spans the entire life course, from pregnancy and early childhood through acute and chronic heart diseases seen in young adult, middle-aged, and older populations.
Our research advances our knowledge on the best ways to prevent, manage, and treat cardiovascular diseases and metabolic conditions. This work includes studies such as Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA), Study of Women, Infant Feeding, and Type 2 Diabetes after Gestational Diabetes (SWIFT), and the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC). We also contribute to multi-institutional partnerships such as the Cardiovascular Research Network.
Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and heart failure are leading causes of death in the United States. Our researchers are involved in many epidemiologic studies and clinical trials aimed at improving care for people with these conditions.

Blood pressure patterns in the first half of pregnancy improve early prediction of preeclampsia and gestational hypertension
Routine blood pressure readings recorded in the first half of pregnancy can be divided into 6 distinct patterns that can effectively stratify patients by their risk of developing preeclampsia and gestational hypertension later in pregnancy.
