Dr. Lin Yee Chen has been awarded a new MPI R01 grant, R01 HL158022, “Glucose Patterns and Cardiac Arrhythmias in Older Adults with Diabetes”. The start date is April 1, 2022.

The overarching aim of this project is to characterize the complex relationships between glycemic variability and heart rate abnormalities/variability in people with type 2 diabetes and quantify the contribution of these relationships to the risk of cardiovascular events and dementia. This project is a multidisciplinary collaboration that includes experts in diverse fields: wearable technology, data science, epidemiology, dementia research, diabetes research, and electrophysiology.
