Dr. Mangione is the Director of the NIH/NIA funded UCLA/Drew Resource Center for Minority Aging Research/Center for Health Improvement of Minority Elderly (RCMAR III/CHIME II), and Co-director of the UCLA Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program. In both of these programs she mentors and trains physicians developing research careers.

Dr. Mangione is the principal investigator for the Translational Research Centers for Diabetes Within Managed-Care Settings (TRIAD) Legacy study, funded by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) to study the quality of care for persons with diabetes where her work has focused on the relationship between organization of care, cost sharing, control of cardiovascular risk factors and process outcomes such as adherence to medications. Dr. Mangione is also principal investigator of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Virtual Lab for California Project. The purpose of this project is to create a coalition of government, academic, and private entities within the state of California to provide access to a diverse set of existing data to answer research questions relating to the health of women and minorities across the life span. In addition Dr. Mangione is co-principal investigator of the new NIH/NIA funded UCLA-Drew/City of Los Angeles Area Agency on Aging Center for Community Research. The major goal of this project is to create a permanent community research infrastructure to create sustained meaningful improvement in the quality of life of lower income older adults.

Dr. Mangione is also a co-investigator of the California Healthcare Foundation (CHCF) funded project entitled, Acting to Reduce Variation in Utilization: Developing Interventions. This project is the second phase of an effort in further understanding variation in resource utilization among six academic medical centers and to identify and implement interventions to reduce unwarranted variation. Currently, Dr. Mangione serves as co-investigator of the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute funded project entitled, Comparative Effectiveness and Outcomes Improvement (CEOI). This project is a statewide effort that aims to develop sustainable statewide infrastructure for Comparative Effectiveness Research on primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease among managed care populations. Funded by the NIH/NIA, in addition Dr. Mangione currently is a co-investigator on a study entitled, Evaluating an Emergency Department Observation Syncope Protocol for Older Adults. The goal of this study is to evaluate an Emergency Department Syncope Observation Protocol (EDOSP) in the management of older patients with syncope.

Dr. Mangione received her B.S. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, her M.D. degree from the University of California, San Francisco, and her MSPH from the Harvard School of Public Health, Boston.
