Mark Pereira, PhD, MPH
My research focuses on the cause and epidemiology of type 2 diabetes, which is a costly, debilitating, and prevalent disease, yet it is highly preventable. My interest has long been steeped in the role of physical activity and nutrition in the prevention of type 2 diabetes and related cardiometabolic risk factors. Because of their close relation to type 2 diabetes, my work also involves investigations into obesity and cardiovascular disease.
