Karen C. Albright, PhD, DO, MPH

SUNY Upstate Medical University

Dr. Albright is an epidemiologist and practicing vascular neurologist in Upstate New York. When her PhD dissertation work identified disparate rates of recurrent vascular events in older black and white Americans following stroke that could not be explained by secondary stroke prevention medication prescribing and adherence, she returned to the study of genetics and molecular biology. Her current program of research focuses on the interplay between pharmacogenes, platelet function phenotype, drugs, and patient outcomes.
