Title: Leveraging Epidemiological, Biological and Medical Data for Prediction and Prevention in Women’s & Children’s Health
Summary: Dr. Zhu’s research interests are at the interface of disease etiology and prevention strategies in women’s and children’s health across the lifespan. Using cohort survey data, biological data, and electronic medical records, she applies a life course approach to examine the developmental origins of cardiometabolic impairments. The findings may inform upstream preventive strategies to interrupt the vicious intergenerational cycle of obesity and diabetes.
