Dr. Yongmei Liu is a genetic epidemiologist with appointments in Cardiology/Medicine and Neurology. Her primary interests are to better understand the molecular mechanisms of aging-related inflammatory diseases including diabetes, atherosclerosis, and Alzheimer’s disease by studying genome, the interplay of genetic and environmental factors, and epigenomic and transcriptomic profiles. The combination of an unbiased genome-wide search in large sample sizes of disease relevant tissues/cells with longitudinal and randomized clinical trial designs, followed up by in vitro and in vivo experiments, is providing novel biomarkers for risk prediction and new insights into mechanisms that are involved in inflammatory diseases.
