Biography

Dr. Wise joined the Department of Epidemiology in 2004 after completing her doctorate at the Harvard School of Public Health. She has an interest in reproductive and perinatal epidemiology. Her research involves the study of benign gynecologic conditions, delayed conception, and adverse pregnancy outcomes. Dr. Wise is principal investigator of Boston University Pregnancy Study Online (PRESTO) and co-investigator of Snart Gravid ("Soon Pregnant") and Snart Foraeldre ("Soon Parents") studies, web-based prospective cohort studies of time-to-pregnancy and birth outcomes in North America and Denmark (http://presto.bu.edu). Dr. Wise is also principal investigator of NIH-funded studies investigating environmental and genetic determinants of uterine fibroids in African-American women, including an ancillary R01 study of endocrine-disrupting chemicals and fibroids in the Study of Environment, Lifestyle, and Fibroids (SELF) in Detroit, Michigan (http://www.detroitself.org/).
