    Research Summary

    Dr. Young’s research focuses on the genetic epidemiology and physiology of cardiovascular disease and its risk factors, especially hypertension, diabetes and obesity. Current activities include an observational study of hypertension among African Americans, a genetic epidemiology study of worldwide cardiovascular disease susceptibility patterns, and involvement in several population-based observational studies of cardiovascular and renal disease.
