Sarah Witkowski is an exercise physiologist whose research focuses on cardiovascular physiology. The overall goal of her research is to understand the cells and signals that promote blood vessel health, repair and regeneration. Recently, she has investigated female-specific conditions, such as menopause, that increase risk for cardiovascular disease and the role that physical activity and fitness play to alter the female risk trajectory.
