Oct 24, 2008

Penny Gordon-Larsen, CPC Fellow and Associate Professor of Nutrition at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC), has been awarded funding for the study "Gene-Environment Interactions and Weight Gain." Using data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health and the Cebu Longitudinal Health and Nutrition Survey, the study will examine how genetic variations are modified by the environment, informing the development of programs for the prevention and treatment of obesity by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status.

This research project is funded through 2013 by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, a branch of the National Institutes of Health.

Linda S. Adair, CPC Fellow and Professor of Nutrition at UNC, is a co-investigator.
