Rose Giordano, PhD
Master of Science Pathologists Assistant
Dr. Rose Giordano is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Professional Studies within the College of Medicine. She completed her undergraduate education at MCP Hahnemann University and earned her doctorate (Nutritional Biochemistry) at the University of California, Davis. Her graduate research focused on fatty acid metabolism during exercise in athletes and in conditions of heart failure. As a Postdoctoral Fellow, she examined the effects of phytosterols and cellular inflammatory markers on brachial artery vasodilatation and systemic inflammation in overweight and obese adults. Since the completion of her academic training, Dr. Giordano has been teaching face-to-face and online courses that include human systemic and reproductive physiology, human and animal nutrition, nutrition for athletic performance and has guest lectured on the various paths of cardiovascular disease.
Presently, she is the west coast faculty and administrative contact for the Master of Science in Pathologists' Assistant Program at the Drexel University Sacramento campus.
