Kelly J. Hunt, Ph.D.
Professor and Division Leader of Epidemiology
Department of Public Health Sciences
Medical University of South Carolina
Prof. Hunt has worked extensively on a number of large epidemiologic cohort studies as well as a number of family studies. Prof. Hunt has extensive experience in designing, implementing and utilizing large observational cohort studies which are inherently collaborative in nature with much of her work focused on genetic and early life determinants of cardiometabolic disease. Her personal area of research interest and expertise is the epidemiology of diabetes with a specific focus on gestational diabetes, cardiometabolic risk and biomarker prediction. Through a K01 award Prof. Hunt studied gestational diabetes and early life determinants of adult disease (NIH K01DK064867); as MPI she completed a grant (NIH 1R01MD004251-01) entitled: Trans-generational Impact of Maternal Obesity and Diabetes on Health Disparities; and as PI she completed a grant (NIH R01 DK088778) entitled: Longitudinal Assessment of LDL Immune Complexes and Type 1 Diabetes Complications. She also served as co-investigator on many large NIH funded cohort studies. Prof. Hunt has extensive experience with participant recall gained through follow-up of participants in the San Antonio Heart Study, San Antonio Family Diabetes Study, the Evans County Heart Study and Project SuGAR. As part of Project Sugar, Prof. Hunt used interviews with a response rate of 76.3% in Charleston, SC to retrospectively collect information from participants up to 15 years after prior contact. Prof. Hunt has extensive experience in designing, implementing and utilizing large observational cohort studies which are inherently collaborative in nature with much of my work focused on genetic and early life determinants of cardiometabolic disease. Prof. Hunt teaches Advanced Epidemiologic Methods.
