Theme 4: Multi-level, Lifecourse Approaches to Obesity- and Nutrition-Related Diseases

The overall goal of BNORC researchers in Theme 4 is to inform our understanding of the natural history of obesity, develop interventions to prevent and treat obesity, and to identify obesity and related lifestyle determinants at multiple levels, including policy. Specifically, our researchers work in clinical and community settings to:

  • 1) Understand the lifecourse of obesity and obesity- and nutrition-related disease by conducting fetal programming, child, adolescent and family studies, as well as obesity, nutrition, physical activity and body composition studies in elderly
  • 2) Test theory-based preventive and treatment interventions using community-engaged research models, where appropriate
  • 3) Identify intersectoral determinants of obesity and lifestyle behaviors
