The primary goals of our research program include: 1) to determine the fundamental role of methyl nutrients in health outcomes; 2) to determine molecular mechanisms underlying the development of obesity, metabolic syndrome and chronic diseases; and, 3) to contribute to evidence-based strategies that will improve the health of the population.
Previous research contributions extend to the following:
1) Role of maternal intake of methyl vitamins in development of energy regulatory pathways.
2) Plasticity of hypothalamic development of food intake regulatory pathways.
3) Impact of diet and gut microbiome on trimethylamine-N-oxide production and metabolic fate in humans.
4) Mode of delivery and development of the immune system in the offspring.
5) Functional food strategies to control blood glucose and food intake in humans.
