Kerry Hildreth, MDLudeman Center Sep 1, 2015
Kerry’s interest in research grew as she became acquainted with colleagues on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus during her fellowship. Working with Dr. Wendy Kohrt and the renowned IMAGE (Investigations in Metabolism, Aging, Gender and Exercise) Research Group in the Division of Geriatric Medicine, Kerry has been able to link up with an ongoing clinical trial to obtain data on the role of estrogen in blood vessel and brain function. She uses cognitive tests as well as ultrasound and functional MRI to observe differences in cognitive function and vasculature in healthy women nearing menopause who are receiving a medication to suppress their estrogen levels as part of this clinical trial.
Kerry loves to enjoy the beautiful Colorado outdoors with her nine year old son. She also loves reading, cooking and traveling when she’s not hard at work in her lab.
