Description

Dr. Dai will share her interdisciplinary human studies to investigate pathophysiological mechanisms linking the environment to cardiometabolic diseases using epigenetic biomarkers. Her presentation will focus on using the discordant twin design to study DNA epigenetic modifications in relation to cardiovascular death prospectively. Using big data, traditional data, and bioinformatic analyses, her team has found the signature DNA hydroxy methylation regions for cardiovascular death, a binary classifier predicting cardiovascular death, and potential pathophysiological mechanisms. Her research findings can shed light on novel clinical therapeutic and public health strategies to improve health.
