What our team is working to do: study the underlying effects of obesity in order to improve obesity treatment options
A Multidisciplinary Research Approach
We combine cutting-edge biological, physiological, and nutritional techniques to advance our understanding of how obesity affects us from the cell to the whole body. We want to know what makes an individual with obesity unique. Together we are working towards helping to find better treatments for obesity and its related disease. We want to give people afflicted with obesity a chance to regain and maintain a healthy state.
