Yuichiro Yano, PhD

yano,-yuichiro-web.jpgAssistant Professor

Dr. Yano is an assistant professor of Preventive Medicine at UMMC. Dr. Yano has been engaging in observational and interventional research on blood pressure (BP) for 13 years. The primary goal of his research is to determine BP phenotypes and patterns (including BP variability, circadian BP variation, and home/24-hour ambulatory BP) in young adulthood associated with future adverse cardiovascular outcomes. Dr. Yano’s clinical training in cardiology and academic training in epidemiology have provided him with the skills to carry out high-impact research studies on the health outcomes associated with abnormal BP phenotypes and strategies to mitigate the associated cardiovascular risk. Since 2012, while working in the Department of Preventive Medicine at Northwestern University, Dr. Yano has performed research using data from a number of the leading NHLBI population-based cardiovascular epidemiology cohort studies, including the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults, Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis, and Framingham studies.

Dr. Yano has become highly experienced in research on the etiology and outcomes of BP variability, longitudinal modeling of cardiovascular risks, and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk predictions, as evidenced by more than 70 peer-reviewed publications and several scientific awards including the Sandra A. Daugherty Award for Excellence in Cardiovascular Disease or Hypertension Epidemiology and Prevention (from the American Heart Association in 2016) and American Society of Hypertension Young Scholar Awards.
