    Collapse overview
    Suma Vupputuri is an epidemiologist with a focus on the etiology, prevention, and treatment of chronic disease. Her substantive areas of interest include heart disease, diabetes, and chronic kidney disease epidemiology, as well as health services and health disparities research. Dr. Vupputuri has worked at KP for over 4 years previously in the Georgia region and has experience with many types of studies including observational, pragmatic trials, and multi-site surveillance/data systems for studying trends in cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

    Dr. Vupputuri has also worked in a variety of different health research settings and has broad experience on how real-world health data is collected, managed, and processed in and across different systems. Her goal is to apply her research interests and experiences with “big data” to novel and exciting studies that will ultimately lead to better health outcomes for patients at KPMAS.

    Dr. Vupputuri is an elected Fellow of the American Heart Association (FAHA) conferred by the Council on Epidemiology and Prevention and recognized for her excellence and sustained contributions to scholarship, practice, education, and volunteer service within in the American Heart Association. She has 10+ years of research experience; has published over 50 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals; and served as PI/site-PI/co-PI on more than 15 funded studies.
