Apa yang akan saya pelajari?

Obesity is one of the most complex public health problems facing the nation and world today. More than a third of Americans and over one billion people worldwide are obese. Significant progress has been made in basic science discoveries related to the regulation of energy balance and in identifying efficacious lifestyle and pharmacologic approaches to manage obesity under tightly controlled conditions in primarily academic healthcare settings. However, there is little information available regarding the clinical relevance of many basic science discoveries or in the translation of promising clinical interventions to evidenced-based practice. Furthermore, little progress has been made in implementing and disseminating effective obesity prevention and treatment programs on a broad scale to have a positive public health impact.

Thus, innovative interdisciplinary graduate training programs are needed to equip the next generation of scientists with the skills and knowledge needed to tackle the complex societal problem of obesity. This Translational Obesity Research graduate training program organized through the Interdisciplinary Graduate Education Program (IGEP) will draw faculty and students from diverse disciplines together to form integrative research teams with a central focus on translational obesity research, spanning from "cells to society" (i.e., from basic science to practice, policy and practice implementation).
