Biography

Dr. Fetterman’s research interests include Mitochondrial Genetics, Mitochondrial Physiology, Regulatory Tobacco Sciences, E-cigarettes, and Vascular Biology. Recently, her study in the journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology provided further evidence that e-cigarettes are not necessarily a benign way to help quit smoking. Five flavorings tested in the lab damaged the heart-protective functions of endothelial cells, which line the inside of blood vessels and the heart.
