An established NIH-funded investigator, Dr. Gabriel has integrated her knowledge of clinical rheumatology with her training in epidemiology and health services research to make important contributions to our understanding of the risks, determinants, and outcomes of rheumatic diseases. Outstanding achievements include her many publications on the risks, costs, and cost-effectiveness of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs); epidemiologic studies examining the risks of connective tissue diseases among women with breast implants; population-based studies characterizing the epidemiology of nearly all the major rheumatic diseases, and studies defining the economic impact of rheumatoid arthritis. Most recently, Dr. Gabriel’s research has focused on elucidating the risks and determinants of heart disease among people with RA.
Dr. Gabriel received her medical degree from the College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada.
