Todd R. Sponholtz, MPH, PhD
Postdoctoral Fellow
Boston University School of Medicine
Dept of Cardiovascular Epidemiology




Dr. Todd Sponholtz is a postdoctoral fellow in the T32 Multidisciplinary Training Program in Cardiovascular Epidemiology at the Boston University School of Medicine. He received his B.S. in genetics from the University of Kansas, M.P.H. and Ph.D. in epidemiology from Boston University School of Public Health. His dissertation research focused on anthropometric, metabolic, reproductive, and hormonal risk factors for endometrial cancer among African American women. He has also investigated occupational risk factors for chronic kidney disease and the relationship between inflammatory biomarkers and bone mineral density. In his current position, he is researching the influence of built- and social environments on, and geographic disparities in cardiovascular disease risk, with a particular focus on obesity and metabolic risk factors. He is also investigating the co-evolution of obesity and metabolic factors over the life span. Additional interests include gene-environment interactions and epidemiology methods.
