Current Research -

Dr. Appt's research interests include using nonhuman primates to better understand factors affecting women’s health. Specifically, the NHP model is ideal for investigating the influence diet and reproductive hormones on risk factors for chronic diseases common in postmenopausal women. NHPs can also be studied to evaluate risk factors for reproductive dysfunction in younger women (i.e. the effect of obesity on reproductive function).

Current projects include exploration of the NHP model for investigations of the effects of diet and atherosclerosis on brain histologic markers associated with dementia, novel treatments for insulin resistance and diabetes and development of preclinical surgical models for a variety of disease interventions. Preclinical surgical models involving other species (swine, sheep) are also of interest.
