Scientific Questions Being Studied

Childhood obesity is a major public health problem across the globe as well as in the US. Childhood obesity can continue into adulthood and is known to be a major risk factor for chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases . Preventing childhood obesity has been actively pursued in pediatric programs. However, decades of rigorous research have shown that prevention and management of obesity is not easy. This is partly due to our limited understating of obesity and the complex interactions among a myriad of various factors, including biological and environmental ones, that are known to contribute to obesity. The motivation of this work is to predict childhood obesity early on and study the cause and consequences of obesity.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (obesity)
  • Drug Development

Scientific Approaches

We are planning to use deep machine learning models to study cause and consequences of obesity and predict childhood obesity.

Anticipated Findings

We are looking to study cause and consequences of childhood obesity. We will look into factors that will help predict childhood obesity early on. This will help prevent obesity and other chronic diseases that are the consequence of childhood obesity.
