Overview

Dr. Foster-Schuberts research focus is on human obesity and body weight regulation. She has investigated the role of exercise-induced weight loss and macronutrient effects on the orexigenic hormone ghrelin, as well as ghrelins effects on islet insulin release. Current research projects are aimed at the following: 1) hormonal and physiologic predictors (including alterations in adipose gene expression) of successful weight loss maintenance following diet and exercise interventions; 2) the effect of varying dietary energy density on body weight regulatory hormones and appetite; 3) development of a novel imaging method to measure parameters of hypothalamic regulation of body weight in humans, using a multi-disciplinary approach.
