Dr. Ho's research focuses on the interaction between obesity, metabolic disease, and cardiac remodeling, and on the identification of novel biomarkers of cardiometabolic risk. Her laboratory specifically focuses on clinical and translational investigations to understand mechanisms driving heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF).

Dr. Ho is the recipient of NIH funding, including a K23 career development award to study the role of galectin-3 in cardiac fibrosis and subclinical cardiovascular disease, and an R01 award to examine the association of metabolic disease and pulmonary hypertension.
