Dr. Cindy Anderson speaking at College of Nursing on December 10


Dr. Anderson is Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Educational Innovation at The Ohio State University College of Nursing.  Her seminar,  "Epigenomic Insights in Preeclampsia" will be at 12:00 pm in Room 133 in the College of Nursing Building on December 10, 2013.

The focus of Dr. Anderson's research is on the study of future cardiovascular consequences in mothers who experience hypertension during pregnancy and in their children. Dr. Anderson investigates how factors during pregnancy can influence the maternal and infant epigenome, establishing future risk for health and disease. Recent emphasis has been on the epigenomic marks that indicate risk for preeclampsia in mothers and their children.
