Susan E. Appt, DVM
Dr. Appt's research interests focus on using nonhuman primates to better understand the influence diet and reproductive hormones have on risk factors for chronic diseases common in postmenopausal women.
Current projects include the characterization of the nonhuman primate model of perimenopause, studies of the effects of hormonal changes across the perimenopausal transition on risk factors for cardiovascular disease, metabolic disease and bone loss and the effects of obesity and diet on ovarian function. New research directions include exploration of the NHP model for investigations of the effects of diet and atherosclerosis on brain histologic markers associated with dementia.
