Obesity and Regulation of Body Weight/Composition

Studies of energy homeostasis and obesity are a longstanding strength, conducted by affiliate investigators in numerous departments. These investigators are supported by numerous NIH grants as well as funding from the VA and other organizations such as the American Diabetes Association. The Diabetes Research Center cores have provided extensive support for the work of these affiliate investigators and will continue to provide such in the future. A number of young, independent investigators interested in the field have become very successful and established scientists from other disciplines are being recruited. Affiliate investigators perform work on this important topic.
