Research


Dr. Hausman is part of a multidisciplinary research team examining the impact of maternal obesity on maternal and fetal epigenetic responses to prenatal folic and supplementation and impact on early fetal growth. In this capacity, she is involved in coordinating the clinical aspects of the research and assessment of nutrient biomarkers.  Dr. Hausman has also served as a core lab leader for the Georgia Centenarian Study Program Project, coordinating of nutritional biomarker assessment, and remains involved in data analysis and interpretation regarding predictors of nutritional status in centenarians. In addition, she has assessed vitamin D, vitamin B12/folate and other nutritional biomarkers in children, women of child-bearing age and older adults for collaborative projects both within and outside the FDN department.
