Drawing on her experience in psychophysiology, behavioral medicine, and epidemiology, Dr. Susan Everson-Rose (EPI '93) will discuss the roles that psychological and social factors play in cardiovascular health and disease risk. Using a Social Determinants of Health framework, she will present key findings from the Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation, the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis, and other epidemiologic studies that inform our current understanding of psychosocial risk pathways to cardiovascular disease and lay the foundation for future work.

Dr. Paus is an expert in mapping the human brain in health and disease using a variety of tools, including positron emission tomography (PET), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electro-encephalography (EEG) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Over the past five years, Dr. Paus has initiated or joined several large-scale studies of brain maturation and cognitive & behavioural development during adolescence, thus pioneering a new discipline of population neuroscience that operates at an intersection of epidemiology, genetics and neuroscience.
