Kaiser Permanente Researcher Profiles


 
Erica Gunderson is an epidemiologist and Senior Research Scientist whose overall research area encompasses the epidemiology of the origins of obesity and chronic diseases in women during the reproductive years as influenced by pre-pregnancy risk factor status, reproductive characteristics, pregnancy course and outcomes, and lactation. She received her Doctorate in Epidemiology and the Warren Winkelstein Award for Excellence in Graduate Studies in Epidemiology from the University of California at Berkeley (UCB). She also earned both MPH and MS degrees from UCB, and a BS degree in Biological Sciences from Stanford University.

Her research focuses on the long-term impact of pregnancy and lactation on the development of obesity, cardiovascular disease risk factors, type 2 diabetes and metabolic disease in women during mid-life. Her research also investigates the role of pregnancy complications as predictors of future diabetes and cardiovascular disease later in life, with a particular interest in the high-risk group of women with a history of gestational diabetes mellitus, and other adverse pregnancy outomes. In addition, she studies the offspring exposed to maternal obesity and diabetes in utero and future obesity. She has authored more than 80 peer-reviewed original research papers and reviews.

Current Position(s):

  • Research Scientist III, Division of Research, Kaiser Permanente Northern California

Section Affiliations:

Primary Research Interests:

  • Effects of pregnancy-related risk factors on pregnancy course and outcomes, and future risk of obesity, metabolic conditions and cardiovascular disease in women and adolescents
  • Lactation and progression to type 2 diabetes, as well as lasting effects on maternal metabolism and cardiovascular risk
  • Gestational diabetes mellitus and future cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes in women, and child outcomes
  • Breastfeeding and the relationship to infant growth, metabolism and development of child overweight and obesity
  • Racial and ethnic disparities and developmental programming of metabolism

    Biomarkers to Predict Type 2 Diabetes

    The goal of this study is to develop a simple biomarker signature that can predict future type 2 diabetes with excellent specificity, sensitivity and precision.

    Pregnancy-Related Risk Factors and Glucose Intolerance in Women during Midlife

    This is an ancillary study to the CARDIA Study, a multi-center longitudinal study of 5,115 black and white women and men (18-30) enrolled in 1985-1986, and followed at in-person exams serially through 2011. The study will evaluate pregnancy-related changes in cardiometabolic risk factors and their lasting effects on progression to glucose intolerance in women from the reproductive years through midlife.

    Inequality in Family Leave and Maternal and Child Health Outcomes

    This study will evaluate the impact of paid family leave policies and job protection on parental leave taking, child care arrangements, and child and mother health outcomes during the 1-2 years following birth of a child. The study, a collaboration between American Institutes for Research and KPDOR, will involve a survey of eligible women about their pre- and post-birth employment, whether and for how long post-birth family leave was taken and whether employer-paid leave was used, childcare arrangements, family demographics, breastfeeding practices, and mother-child bonding. Survey data will be linked with health and health care utilization data for both baby and mother for up to 1-2 years after birth.

    Lactation and Incidence of Diabetes Mellitus in CARDIA Women

    The goals of our study are to prospectively examine whether longer duration of lactation is associated with development of type 2 diabetes in women of reproductive age during the 25-year CARDIA study period (1986-2011) and assess changes in risk factors. We will identify changes in cardiometabolic risk factors and biomarkers linked to incident type 2 DM as well as lactation, and examine duration of lactation for all pregnancies in relation visceral fat levels in mid-life.
