Lindsey Sjaarda, Ph.D. joined the Epidemiology Branch of NICHD in 2012 as a fellow and began her role as Staff Scientist in 2014. She received a Ph.D. in Reproductive Biology from the University of Wyoming, Center for the Study of Fetal Programming and an M.S. in Animal & Poultry Sciences from Virginia Tech. Dr. Sjaarda also completed two years of postdoctoral training in clinical research in the Department of Pediatrics, in collaboration with the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences, at the University of Pittsburgh. Her research interests include the developmental origins of obesity and its comorbidities (e.g. diabetes, metabolic syndrome), pregnancy, and male and female infertility, including polycystic ovary syndrome.
