Kaiser Permanente Researcher Profiles

Erica  Gunderson, PhD, MS, MPH

Erica P. Gunderson, PhD, M­­PH, RD, is a senior research scientist at Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research and a professor of Health Systems Science at Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine. She is a reproductive life-course epidemiologist studying the lasting effects of pregnancy outcomes and lactation on future metabolic and cardiovascular health outcomes in women and the impact of intrauterine exposures and early postnatal dietary intake on growth and health of their children. Her prospective, longitudinal studies spanning the child-bearing years are among the first to distinguish antecedent risk factor influences, i.e., preconception and gestational cardiometabolic risk, on adverse pregnancy outcomes (APOs) and lactation as contributors to future cardiometabolic health outcomes in women, including type 2 diabetes. Her research studies preserve the temporal sequence of these exposures, equivalence of preconception risk, and account for APOs to strengthens the evidence basis for causal inferences related to lactation lowering risk of progression to T2D and CVD in women. A second research focus characterizes early pregnancy blood pressure patterns that predict hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, and longer-term CVD outcomes, and the joint roles of chronic hypertension and preeclampsia as contributing to racial and ethnic disparities in maternal morbidity.

Dr. Gunderson recruited patients into the Study of Women, Infant Feeding and Type 2 Diabetes after Gestational Diabetes (SWIFT), a diverse, prospective cohort of 1,033 women with gestational diabetes (75% minority: Asian, Black, Hispanic) recruited during pregnancy (2008-2011) who consented to 3 in-person research exams, each including 2-h 75 g OGTTs from early postpartum through 2 years post-delivery to identify predictors of T2D. The SWIFT Study continues in ongoing follow up to the present via Kaiser Permanente electronic health records for clinical diagnoses of T2D. Dr. Gunderson is a co-investigator on the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) Study, and led two R01 ancillary studies to investigate risk factors changes during the reproductive life-course, including the preconception, pregnancy and post-pregnancy periods, and their influence on the progression to T2D in young Black and White women, and their future risk of cardiovascular disease.

In 2020-21, Dr. Gunderson was appointed a member of the Organizing Committees for the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, Workshop on Nutrition During Pregnancy and Lactation: Exploring New Evidence, and the Workshop on Approaches to Assessing Intake of Food and Dietary Supplements in Pregnant Women and Children 2 to 11 Years of Age. In 2022, she received the Dr. Nanette K. Wenger Research Goes Red Award for the Best Scientific Article Cardiovascular Disease and Stroke in Women from the American Heart Association in 2022. Dr. Gunderson received the Agnes Higgins Award in Maternal-Fetal Nutrition from The March of Dimes in 2023. She has authored more than 140 peer-reviewed original research papers and reviews on the preconception, pregnancy and lactation continuum and its lasting impact on longer-term cardiometabolic outcomes in women and their children. Dr. Gunderson earned her BS in Biological Sciences at Stanford University, and her MPH and MS in Public Health/Nutritional Sciences and PhD in Epidemiology at the University of California at Berkeley, with the distinction of receiving the Warren Winkelstein Award for Graduate Studies in Epidemiology.

Targeted metabolomics for early pregnancy prediction of gestational diabetes mellitus

This study will apply a targeted metabolomics approach to the prediction of gestational diabetes from a single blood sample collected in the first trimester of pregnancy and stored for the Research Program on Genes, Environment and Health pregnancy cohort study, which recruited 24,000 pregnant participants during early pregnancy through delivery within Kaiser Permanente Northern California. This large racially and ethnically diverse pregnancy cohort, with stored biospecimens, and clinical data and perinatal health outcomes from electronic health records, provides an excellent opportunity to conduct a nested case-control study among women without prior diabetes to identify a metabolite profile predicting subsequent gestational diabetes diagnosis during mid-gestation. This study will involve a specialized targeted metabolomics approach that can reveal risk of gestational diabetes significantly sooner than conventional tests.

Biomarker of Pancreatic B-cell Loss Predicting Progression to Type 2 Diabetes After Gestational Diabetes

The goal of this study is to identify unmethylated INS DNA reflecting higher type 2 diabetes risk in women after gestational diabetes pregnancy and to evaluate unmethylated INS DNA as a potential mediator of the lactation duration and intensity association with up to 50% lower relative risk of progression to type 2 diabetes in women after gestational diabetes. The study combines the two largest collections worldwide of longitudinal biospecimens from serial annual 2-h 75 g research OGTTs and in-person research visits in 1,033 women with gestational diabetes followed prospectively since early postpartum (6-9 wks) through 2 years post-delivery, and up to 12 years via electronic health records for type 2 diabetes testing in the KPNC Study of Women, Infant Feeding and Type 2 Diabetes After Gestational Diabetes (SWIFT) funded by NICHD and NIDDK (Gunderson, PI), and women enrolled from 12 weeks to 1 year postpartum and followed through 4 years post-delivery in Tianjin GDM Observational study (TGDM-O) funded by the European Foundation for the Study of Diabetes (Hu, PI

Effect of reproductive history on longitudinal change in cardiac, vascular, and lipid parameters

The NHLBI NGHS enrolled 871 girls (50% Black and 50% white) in 1987 at age 9 or 10 and examined them up to 17 times, to age 27. This resulted in 7 echocardiogram reports from ages 20-27, multiple saved samples, and reproductive history questionnaires. We will conduct detailed lipoprotein sizing and functionality assessments from stored and new samples, cardiovascular imaging, and repeat echocardiograms at median age 46. Our aims are to determine the specific lipoprotein particle size distribution and function changes which occur from before to short- and long-term post-pregnancy; determine whether pregnancy-related cardiac adaptations result in long-term alterations in cardiac structure and function, thereby increasing CVD risk for women in their forties; and to test whether parity increases cardiovascular risk independently of socioeconomic status in Black and white women.

Fetal and Early Postnatal Influences on Child Metabolic Health After Gestational Diabetes

This 5-year RO1 study will determine the independent contribution of fetal exposures and early postnatal lifestyle factors on subsequent development of child adiposity and metabolic health among youth (ages 9 to 13 ) exposed to gestational diabetes in utero. The research study will evaluate cardiometabolic health factors and lifestyle behaviors in youth whose mothers were diagnosed with gestational diabetes and enrolled in the prospective, longitudinal SWIFT Study from 2008 to 2011. This study will conduct an in-person research exam and will coordinate the research exams in the children with 10-year follow up exams in the SWIFT women to reclassify glucose tolerance.

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.

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.
