Biography

Sarah Johnson is Assistant Professor in Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition in Colorado State University. She have done her Doctor of Philosophy in the Nutrition and Food Science Department of Nutrition, Food and Exercise Sciences, Florida State University. The primary goals of her  research program are to identify and/or develop safe and efficacious functional foods, bioactive compounds, dietary supplements, and other dietary interventions that can effectively prevent and/or improve both established and emerging risk factors (e.g. blood pressure, vascular health, dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, and gastrointestinal health) associated with the development metabolic disorders (e.g. metabolic syndrome, hypertension, type II diabetes) and related chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. This is achieved primarily through conducting clinical research studies and utilizing novel techniques aimed at obtaining mechanistic insights. A population of particular interest is postmenopausal women, as the physiological changes that occur in the menopausal transition and postmenopausal period have been shown to accelerate the development and progression of many of the above mentioned risk factors, disorders, and diseases.
