Research Interests

My research focuses on investigation of the etiology and possible treatment for obesity and metabolic abnormalities in individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome and early-onset obesity. I have been working towards achieving an appropriate treatment for hyperphagia for the past 12 years. I currently follow over 500 patients with Prader-Willi syndrome from around the world, and over 100 patients with early-onset obesity due to other genetic causes. I am working on clinical treatment trials to treat hyperphagia in individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome and early-onset obesity..
