LaShaunta Glover is an epidemiologist with expertise in cardiovascular, social, and genetic epidemiology. Her research focuses on evaluating and understanding the social determinants of health that exacerbate cardiovascular disease. Her research additionally focuses on exploring social-biological pathways to cardiovascular disease risk with specific focus on OMICs (e.g. epigenomics, proteomics, metabolomics), as a way to understand how social factors lead to upstream cardiovascular disease. Dr. Glover primarily utilizes data from longitudinal cohort studies to understand these associations and is passionate about investigating reasons for health disparities in populations.
