Cardiometabolic disease has emerged as a growing public health problem across the world. While a large proportion of cardiometabolic disease risk arises from heritable factors and health behaviors, it has hypothesized for years that psychosocial and environmental stressors contribute to the development of these pathologies. Nevertheless, the mechanisms are incompletely defined. Dr. Osborne's research implements advanced cardiovascular imaging, specifically positron emission tomography, to: 1) understand the mechanisms that link psychosocial and environmental stressors to cardiometabolic diseases, 2) identify early markers of cardiometabolic risk, and 3) evaluate the effect of interventions on imaging biomarkers of cardiometabolic diseases.
