Recently, Dr. Mente has co-led an investigation on the role of fats and carbohydrates in cardiovascular disease in the PURE cohort. He also has conducted numerous large systematic reviews of diet and cardiovascular disease including saturated fat. He is currently co-leading nutrition work in the PURE study investigating the impact of individual foods on cardiovascular markers and cardiovascular disease events.
