David J. Maron
C. F. Rehnborg Professor and Professor of Medicine (Stanford Prevention Research Center)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Maron is the Co-Chair and Principal Investigator of the ISCHEMIA trial, and Co-Chair of the ISCHEMIA-CKD trial. These large, international, NIH-funded studies will determine whether an initial invasive strategy of cardiac catheterization and revascularization plus optimal medical therapy will reduce cardiovascular events in patients with and without chronic kidney disease and at least moderate ischemia compared to an initial conservative strategy of optimal medical therapy alone.
Andrea Mendoza Vasconez
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention
Bio Dr. Andrea S. Mendoza-Vasconez' research has primarily focused on the promotion and maintenance of physical activity among Latino populations, using both quantitative and qualitative research methods. Dr. Mendoza-Vasconez is interested in citizen science as a means of empowering and mobilizing underserved communities, and in the use of technology to tailor interventions in a behavioral precision medicine approach.
Outside of research, Dr. Mendoza-Vasconez loves spending time with her family (especially her baby daughter Olivia), biking, learning new and challenging things (like surfing!), and traveling to new places (which will unfortunately be done sparingly in the future in an effort to reduce her ecological footprint).
