Lisa Conboy, Sc.D.


I am a social epidemiologist and a sociologist with an interest in the associations between social factors and health.  I am published in the areas of Women's Health, Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Integrative Medicine, and qualitative research methodology. I do research and teach research methodologies at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, as the research director and faculty at the New England School of Acupuncture, and at other acupuncture schools in the United States. My portfolio also includes research in the mental, physical, and spiritual benefits of yoga, meditation, Ayurveda and other holistic and mind-body therapies.

    GWI: Molecular Analysis of Disease Endophenotypes and Response to Acupuncture Treatment
    Role Description: The major goals of the study are: a) To identify GWI-specific biomarker signatures by comparing the plasma proteome of GWI patients against matched healthy individuals and two different disease controls; b) To facilitate personalized acupuncture treatment delivery based on predictive biomarkers; c) To understand the biological mechanisms of acupuncture healing. Aim 1: Develop GWI-specific biomarker signatures by comparing the serum proteome of GWI patients with matched healthy individuals and disease controls Aim 2: Personalized acupuncture treatment in GWI Veterans based on biomarker signatures Aim 3: Identify biomarkers of acupuncture effects that follow a dose-response pattern
    Role: Co-Investigator

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.
