Dr. Hsieh has expertise in global health, with a specific focus on integrating biomedical and behavioral research methods to improve outcomes for rheumatic and musculoskeletal disease in countries in economic transition. The major emphasis of this body of research has focused on mechanisms, epidemiology, and prevention strategies for osteoporosis among individuals with HIV in China. The tools and models developed through this work have also translated to projects in other low-resource settings (osteoporosis, fracture and sarcopenia among women with HIV in Peru), and other models of secondary osteoporosis (breast cancer and rheumatoid arthritis). She also has a longstanding commitment to medical education and global health research training.
