Biography

Dr. Ranadive completed his PhD from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Following this he worked at the Mayo Clinic as a postdoctoral fellow. His research primarily focuses on studying cardiovascular aspects of integrative human physiology related to aging, sex differences and racial disparities. 

Dr. Ranadive’s educational background in Exercise Physiology and Occupational Therapy makes him uniquely well suited to study these variables in humans. He has worked extensively on research projects involving vascular function in relation to aging, inflammation and environmental stressors. In particular, he has focussed on research projects involving vascular function in postmenopausal women. In this context, he is currently studying the mechanisms related to the higher prevalence of hypertension in postmenopausal women as compared with age-matched men. He plans specifically to study neurovascular control mechanisms in both pre- and postmenopausal women that are either unstudied or understudied. Dr. Ranadive's current projects focus on racial and sex disparities in vascular function following acute inflammation.
