Reveal, Don't Conceal: Rethinking Data Visualization & Statistics Education to Improve Transparency
Tracey L. Weissgerber, Ph.D., focuses her research on the pregnancy complication preeclampsia. Her goal is to understand why women develop preeclampsia and why women with a history of preeclampsia are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease and other health problems later in life.
Dr. Weissgerber's research combines epidemiologic studies with mechanistic vascular physiology studies. These studies provide information about the risk profile of women who have had preeclampsia and other forms of hypertension in pregnancy. Dr. Weissgerber seeks to determine how this risk profile changes throughout pregnancy and in the months and years after delivery.
