Research Interests:

Dr. Wise has an interest in reproductive and perinatal epidemiology.  Her current research focuses on the epidemiology of uterine leiomyomata (fibroids) in black women and risk factors for delayed conception and adverse pregnancy outcomes. Dr. Wise is Co-Investigator of the Black Women’s Health Study (BWHS), a nationwide prospective cohort study of over 59,000 U.S. black women. She is Principal Investigator of BWHS-based studies that aim to identify dietary, genetic, and psychosocial determinants of fibroids.  She is also Principal Investigator of an Internet-based prospective cohort study of time-to-pregnancy in Massachusetts, and Co-Investigator of a similarly-designed fertility study in Denmark.
