Personal Statement

Dr. Newman's research focuses on aging, including the determinants of physical and cognitive function as well as successful aging and longevity. She has special expertise in the study of cardiovascular disease and aging and body composition, sarcopenia, and physical functioning. She is presently the Principal Investigator (PI) of several long term cohort studies and clinical trials in older adults funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA).

Dr. Newman is professor and chair of the Department of Epidemiology in the Graduate School of Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh with a secondary appointment in the Department of Medicine and with the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) at the University of Pittsburgh. She was appointed to the Katherine M. Detre Endowed Chair of Population Health Science in the Graduate School of Public Health in June, 2014. Dr. Newman is an elected member of the American Epidemiology Society and the Delta Omega Honor Society in Public Health. Dr. Newman is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine with added qualifications in geriatric medicine. She directs the Center for Aging and Population Health in the Graduate School of Public Health which includes a CDC Prevention Research Center and an NIA National Service Award for training epidemiology doctoral fellows in the Epidemiology of Aging. She also serves as co-PI for the NIA funded Older Americans Independence Center in the Department of Medicine.
