Narrative icon

  Dr. Joshipura is a Professor of Epidemiology, and the NIH Endowed Chair & Director of the Center for Clinical Research and Health Promotion at the University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences Campus. She is also an Adjunct Professor of Epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health. Dr. Joshipura has a Master's degree in Biostatistics, a Doctorate degree in Epidemiology and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Public Health.

Her research has focused on assessing the impact of dental disease on systemic disease, and on evaluating dietary, inflammatory and other pathways for these associations. She was among the first to show prospectively that tooth loss and/or periodontal disease were risk factors for coronary heart disease, ischemic stroke and peripheral artery disease. Dr. Joshipura has been the Principal Investigator of several NIH funded projects, including a mentoring grant. Her research focuses on evaluating inflammation and nutritional risk factors for cardiometabolic conditions. Her current projects that engage faculty from several UPR and external institutions include a cohort study relating periodontitis, inflammation and pre-diabetes, and a randomized control trial to evaluate diet and physical activity interventions during pregnancy and early life on cardiometabolic outcomes in mothers and infants.

She serves on editorial boards and conducts manuscript and grant reviews for national and international journals and organizations. She has served as a consultant/advisor to CDC, American Academy of Periodontology, WHO and serves as an advisor to American Dental Association.

Dr. Joshipura founded a global public initiative "VMove" to help individuals and organizations overcome barriers to increasing physical activity throughout the day in creative resource free ways.
