Faculty Mentors are all from the University of Maryland School of Public Health and all have current and pending extramural funding in content areas that are highly relevant to cardiovascular disease. Because of the School of Public Health’s emphasis on biomedical and behavioral factors surrounding important public health issues relevant to residents of Maryland and surrounding communities, the nation, and beyond, most of the faculty’s research programs are in these areas. In particular, substantial research is on behavior, specifically physical activity/exercise training, as an exposure to affect outcomes relevant to cardiovascular disease risk factors. In some cases, faculty research focuses on reducing other risk behaviors, such as smoking. The faculty have a mix of expertise that ranges from laboratory-based bench research to applied community-based research.
