Dr. Fornage received her Ph.D. from the University of Texas - Houston in 1996. She pursued her post-doctoral training in the Department of Genetics at Case Western University, Cleveland, Ohio. She joined the Institute of Molecular Medicine, University of Texas - Houston, in 1998 as a Research Fellow, was appointed Assistant Professor of Molecular Medicine in 2000, and Associate Professor in 2007. Dr. Fornage is also a faculty member of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences Program in Human and Molecular Genetics. Her research interests lie in the molecular genetics of complex diseases, with an emphasis on cerebrovascular disease and stroke. She is a member of the American Society of Human Genetics and the American Heart Association Stroke Council. Dr. Fornage is an investigator of the NHLBI Coronary Artery Disease Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) study, a multi-center study of the distribution and evolution of coronary heart disease risk factors from young adulthood to middle-age. Her contribution to the study is directed toward the investigation of the interaction between genes and environmental factors that contribute to the development of coronary heart disease in young adults. Ongoing work investigates the interactions of variation in genes involved in eicosanoid synthesis and metabolism with dietary intake of fatty acids on the development and progression of atherosclerosis and its risk factors.
