Lucia  Gonzalez Ramirez

Doctoral Stud-Add'l Assgnmt/BW

Lucía González Ramírez is a Nutrition and Health Sciences PhD student at the Emory University Rollins School of Public Health. Her research interests focus on the role of nutrition in immunometabolism, particularly with regards to cancer, critical illness, obesity, and diabetes. She is also interested in integrating metabolomics and nutrigenomics towards precision and predictive nutrition.

Prior to beginning her doctoral studies, Lucía worked as a clinical dietitian and a professor in México. She also collaborated as a Research Coordinator in the The GEMM Family Study (Genética de las Enfermedades Metabólicas en México/Genetics of Metabolic Diseases) at its center in Mérida, Yucatán. The GEMM Family Study is a bi-national, multi-center collaborative study of early cardiovascular risk phenotypes of metabolic origin related to type 2 diabetes and the risk of cardiovascular disease.

She believes that only by taking nutrition out of the lab and into the real world can we change our current modalities of health and quality of life.
