Dr. Andrea Glenn is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and at the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Toronto. She has a PhD in Nutritional Sciences and is also a Registered Dietitian. Her research interests include the role of plant-based dietary patterns on cardiometabolic disease risk. She is currently working on the role of the cholesterol-lowering portfolio diet in preventing cardiovascular disease, incorporating traditional epidemiological analyses, clinical trial data and metabolomics. Other research areas include carbohydrate quality and plant protein. Dr. Glenn is also interested in developing knowledge translation activities related to plant-based dietary patterns.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
