Exome Variants Underlying Weight Gain from Adolescence to AdulthoodPenny Gordon-LarsenThe objective of the research is to investigate how genetic variants influence temporal changes in body mass index and downstream cardiometabolic risk factors at a vulnerable lifecycle period for weight gain, with differential risk across race/ethnic groups. Our findings will contribute to the understanding of risk in the transition from adolescence into adulthood, a period of rapid weight gain when precursors of adult disease are developing, in order to inform efforts to mitigate early development of disease risk.Biomarkers, Biostatistics, Data Science, Longitudinal/Life-Course, Multi-level Approaches, Race/Gender/Age/SESUnited States of America
