Vivian Tran Graduate Researcher, Physiology Anatomy & Microbiology

Obesity affects 1.9 billion adults world-wide and is an independent risk factor for the development of type-2 diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. This low-grade chronic inflammatory condition is thought to be associated with vascular dysfunction. My research, therefore, focuses on vascular inflammation and damage in obesity and hypertension.

My other contributions and passions include teaching and mentoring undergraduate and highschool students from underrepresented schools to pursue and build their own aspirations for STEM studies; in addition to becoming confident in their STEM-related abilities.
