Dr. Laurie Gold (Health and Human Sciences, Kinesiology) received additional funding from the National Institutes of Health for the project “Pathways from Childhood Self-Regulation to Cardiovascular Risk in Adolescence.” Gold’s research will test whether trajectories of self-regulation from ages 2 to 10 predict trajectories of cardiovascular risk factors (CVR) during adolescence, as well as whether childhood self-regulation adolescent CVR pathways are mediated by health behaviors such as substance use, exercise, nutrition and sleep.

Gold has a bachelor’s in biology from the University of Waterloo, a master’s in physiology from Ball State University and a PhD in exercise physiology from the University of Virginia.
