overview Other Appointments: Associate Dean, College of Health Sciences Professor, Preventive Medicine, Rush Medical College Overview: Christine C. Tangney, PhD, FACN, CNS, a professor and associate dean for research in the College of Health Sciences. Her expertise is in assessment of dietary behaviors of individuals and population samples in relation to cardiovascular and cognitive health. Her early research focused on pulmonary disease and nutrition assessment at the bench, but evolved to include population approaches in nutritional epidemiology. Much of her recent efforts focus on the development of short dietary screeners to monitor changes in dietary behaviors and key biomarkers of young pre-hypertensive African-American women, women who are middle-aged or older with cardiovascular risk, individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson’s disease, as well as breast cancer survivors. Understanding what constitutes meaningful dietary changes — and conversely, dietary stability —is a critical component of her research. Her earlier research centered on the influence of dietary antioxidants, particularly vitamin E in Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease, and heart diseases. She served as a co-investigator nutritionist on numerous grants, Women’s Health Initiative, the Chicago Health and Aging Nutrition project, and the Memory and Aging Project, an ongoing cohort of older persons in Chicago. Tangney has mentored over 100 graduate students in clinical nutrition, as well as doctoral candidates in the College of Health Sciences (Rush) and the School of Health and Human Sciences (University of North Carolina) and served on more than 90 thesis or dissertation committees for graduate students in the Colleges of Health Sciences and of Nursing. She has been privileged to hood more than 10 graduating classes in the College of Health Sciences’ Master’s in Clinical Nutrition program. She is now actively engaged in aiding, mentoring and supporting the College of Health Sciences faculty in their research efforts.
