Dr. Hivert's research focuses on the etiology and primordial prevention of obesity and related co-morbidities, particularly type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes. She investigates pathophysiology and heterogeneity of gestational diabetes using genomics, biomarkers, and integration of lifestyle factors. Her research interests include fetal metabolic programming mechanisms and the integration of genetics, epigenetics, and environmental factors contributing to obesity and diabetes over the life course. She is the Principal Investigator (PI) of Genetics of Glucose regulation In Gestation and Growth (Gen3G), and co-PI of Project Viva, two independent prospective pre-birth cohorts that investigate the health determinants of mothers and children. Her research is funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), and American Diabetes Association (ADA), among others.
