Dr. Guasch-Ferré is an Associate Professor in the Department of Public Health and Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research, University of Copenhagen, Denmark; and an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Boston, United States.
Dr. Guasch-Ferré research interests focus on investigating the role of dietary and lifestyle factors in chronic diseases, specifically, cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D). She has incorporated high-throughput –omics techniques, metabolomics, and genetics, into traditional epidemiological analysis to gain insights into underlying mechanisms that could explain the associations between diet and lifestyle factors in relation to CVD and T2D.
Her research group is dedicated to integrating nutrition and lifestyle with big data to advance the prevention of non-communicable diseases such as CVD and T2D.
