  • : Online

The pervasive impact of obesity across generations is one of our most serious public health concerns. Obesity in either parent independently increases the risk for childhood obesity. It is now clear that both maternal and paternal factors play key roles via non-genetic mechanisms. Our lab works on the impact of maternal obesity or early life disadvantage on offspring metabolic risk, exploring avenues of intervention.
