Dr. Roman's research interests include: Marfan syndrome, familial aortic aneurysm, valvular heart disease, cardiovascular involvement in rheumatologic diseases, particularly systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. She is currently involved in an NIH-funded trial comparing two different pharmacologic therapies to limit aortic aneurysm progression in children and young adults with Marfan syndrome. She is also involved in population-based studies of cardiovascular disease risk factors and incidence in American Indians and Alaska Eskimos. Her research has documented that non-invasive measurement of central blood pressure using a novel methodology is a better predictor of cardiovascular damage and events than the standard method of measuring brachial blood pressure.
