    Professor and Vice Chair for Research, Department of Medicine, Georgetown University Medical Center Director, Center for the Study of Sex Differences in Health, Aging, and Disease, Georgetown University Director, Predoc and Postdoc Training Program, Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science
    Dr. Sandberg’s research focuses on the molecular mechanisms underlying the sex differences in the incidence and rate of progression of hypertension and associated cardiovascular and renal disease. Dr. Sandberg has found that the incidence and rate of progression of these disease states is higher in men than age-matched women, until women reach menopause. After menopause, women rapidly catch up with men. Through Dr. Sandberg’s research, we will develop a better understanding of cardiovascular disease risks evolve for both men and women during aging.
