Nicole M. Gatto, MPH, PhD


I am an epidemiologist with a breadth of training and experience across the health sciences, which I have applied to academic, clinical, governmental, non-profit and private sector settings. My research focuses on environmental, genetic and lifestyle risk and protective factors for diseases impacting aging populations, specifically Parkinson’s disease, dementias/cognitive impairment, cancer and cardiovascular disease. I additionally have a special interest in health promotion interventions for childhood obesity prevention among Latino and low-income populations.
