Join us for the next Meet the PI lecture featuring the work of Rebecca Thurston, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry, Clinical and Translational Science, Epidemiology and Psychology.
Dr. Thurston joined the Department of Psychiatry in 2005 and has established a research program focusing on menopause and cardiovascular disease (CVD) in women, two prevalent and inter-related health issues that can have a profound impact on their lives. Over the course of her career, she has made significant contributions to two interrelated lines of women's health research: 1) hot flashes and their disruptive effects on quality of life, and 2) determinants of women's cardiovascular disease (CVD), which continues to be the leading cause of death in women.
