Woo Research Lab

The overarching theme of the Woo Lab is to understand the causes and short- and long-term consequences of childhood obesity and metabolic dysregulation. Childhood obesity is multifactorial, so the Woo Lab leverages both large-scale epidemiologic cohort data and detailed assessments of biochemical, social, and genetic factors related to growth and development. Areas of particular interest in childhood include longitudinal growth trajectories, early nutrition, infant-caregiver interactions, and microbiome development. Long-term/adult cardiovascular risk from childhood measurements is a major focus on this lab, as well, as a key component of the International Childhood Cardiovascular Cohort (i3C) Consortium. The Woo Lab is also a hub for several significant epidemiologic cohorts based in Cincinnati, and welcomes potential collaborators interested in these resources.
