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:

  • Life course evaluation of reproductive factors, pregnancy outcomes and critical periods affecting maternal obesity, and cardiometabolic health, and future progression to type 2 diabetes and CVD in women
  • Predictive modeling for hypertension and CVD in women
  • Metabolomics based on machine learning for prediction of incident T2D in young women across the childbearing years
  • Early fetal and postnatal life modifiable behaviors and temperament influencing obesity and cardiometabolic disease in children
  • Fetal life and early postnatal metabolic programming of metabolism and adiposity. Racial and ethnic disparities and developmental programming of metabolism

Metabolites Preceding Progression to Type 2 Diabetes in Women after Gestational Diabetes

This study will identify biochemical markers that predict type 2 diabetes mellitus in women after a pregnancy complicated by gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). Ultimately, the results of this study may lead to improved testing and more effective, personalized interventions to prevent diabetes in women after GDM pregnancy.

Gestational diabetes phenotypes, glucose tolerance transitions and lifestyle behaviors related to cardiovascular risk status

The Study of Women, Infant Feeding, and Type 2 Diabetes after GDM Pregnancy (SWIFT) is a prospective, community-based cohort of mothers aged 20-45 years of age and diagnosed with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) who delivered a singleton pregnancy longer than 35 weeks gestation at Kaiser Permanente Northern California in 2008-2011. The new study leverages the SWIFT cohort's rich datasets, and measures blood pressure and novel biomarkers in blood samples obtained at the NIDDK funded 10-year follow up exam. The goal of this ancillary study will evaluate the relationship of GDM phenotype and subsequent transitions in glucose tolerance after GDM pregnancy to cardiovascular disease risk profiles, inflammation, and novel lipid biomarkers as well as effect modification by lifestyle behaviors.

Prenatal Blood Pressure Patterns to Predict Pregnancy-Related Hypertension and Later-Life Cardiovascular Risk

This study utilizes clinical prenatal-care blood pressure measurements and other clinical and biochemical variables to develop models for the early prediction of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, and evaluates the relationship of pregnancy blood-pressure patterns to new onset hypertension and cardiovascular diseases in women within more than a decade later.

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.

Funder: National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases

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.
