      As an epidemiologist and a general internal medicine physician, my research is designed to inform clinical decision-making and policy relevant to primary care and prevention. I focus on prevention of cardiovascular disease, and have particular interests in early life causes of atherosclerosis, primordial and primary coronary heart disease and stroke prevention, clinical decision-making regarding use of preventive medications (statins and anti-hypertensives) and screening for subclinical cardiovascular disease. I have special expertise in study design, decision and cost-effectiveness analysis, risk prediction, and evaluating the clinical utility of biomarkers, and I currently lead an effort supported by NIH’s Economics of Prevention Common Fund Initiative, a data coordinating center for a major ongoing multicenter clinical trial, and the Health eHeart Study, an online technology-enabled cardiovascular cohort study. I help lead our nationally-recognized clinical research training programs, teach clinical research methods (Course Director for 2 classes), mentor students, fellows and junior faculty members, and see patients in the general medicine clinic at UCSF/Mt Zion.
