Research focuses on studying the role of inflammation on aortic smooth muscle cell function. A major focus has been studying the impact of acute phase serum amyloid A on the development of atherosclerosis. Most recently, efforts have been directed at evaluating the role of periodontal disease on the vasculature with an eye toward poor birth outcomes.

Dr. Schreiber is also the director of the graduate of studies in the Biochemistry department and co-PI on the Boston University Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training (BU’s BEST) award.
