Cindy Anderson’s research is focused on the study of hypertension in pregnancy and the influence that the maternal pregnant environment has on future development of hypertension in offspring. Recent investigation is targeted towards gene-environment interactions that increase heritable risk for preeclampsia, including the study of disrupted gene function due to changes in DNA methylation. The findings of her research have the potential to significantly improve health outcomes of women and their children through early screening and identification of individuals at risk for preeclampsia across the lifespan.
