The John B. Pierce Laboratory

Poster Presentations from Stachenfeld Laboratory at Experimental Biology 2021 Virtual meeting; April 27-30, 2021

From Dr. Stachenfeld’s Laboratory, Tori Stone, Mari Chiles and Zeenat Hussain will be presenting posters at Experimental Biology 2021 Virtual meeting.  Dr. Stone is presenting her work demonstrating testosterone impairs autonomic function in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and Ms. Chiles’s data demonstrate that the impact of PCOS on cardiovascular function is more profound in black versus white women with PCOS.  Finally, Ms. Hussain evaluated published primary source studies and demonstrated that black and Hispanic women are poorly represented in studies examining PCOS.

“Our studies presented at EB2021 together continue our laboratory’s work to examine important comorbidities associated with PCOS.  Importantly, we are addressing not only the effect of hormonal exposure in these women, but how race and ethnicity may play role in progression of this condition.”  –Nina Stachenfeld
