The laboratory of Sarah E. Baker, Ph.D., studies how the autonomic nervous system regulates blood pressure and heart rate, with a focus on sex differences and women's health. Current studies investigate the relationship between neurovascular function and hot flashes in midlife women. The premise is that the neurovascular dysregulation associated with hot flashes puts women at risk for cardiovascular disease at menopause.
Dr. Baker's lab collaborates with investigators across the Mayo Clinic enterprise. Projects focus on:
Understanding how the neurovascular physiology of women relates to hot flashes will inform hypertension and cardiovascular disease (CVD) treatment and prevention options. The presence of hot flashes are a CVD risk factor beyond traditional CVD risk factors and, as such, is likely to be an important determinant for a woman's health.
