Cardiovascular Disease

Dr Dasgupta is an Associate Professor of Medicine at McGill University and an attending physician at the MUHC.  She is the Director and a Senior Physician Scientist, Centre for Outcomes Research and Evaluation (CORE), Research Institute of the MUHC. Her specific area of interest is the prevention of cardiovascular disease in patients with type 2 diabetes or other conditions of insulin resistance. Dr Dasgupta is presently conducting a CIHR-funded trial concerning the use of supervised exercise in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

Current research: 

My research focuses on the prevention and management of blood vessel disease in people with diabetes or who are at risk for diabetes. I am leading a clinical trial comparing the effects of prescribing step count targets (by physicians) in adults with diabetes or hypertension to look at effects on blood vessle stiffness. I am leading a study to develop and test a meal preparation-eating and activity education program to reduce diabetes risk in ladies who have had diabetes in pregnancy. I am also leading a study to see if the partners of women who have had diabetes in pregnancy are also at higher risk for diabetes. Finally, I am leading a study looking at how the degree of walkability of a neighbourhood is related to how much people with diabetes actually walk.
