Dr. Meijer's research uses metabolomics to identify risk of metabolic disease, such as type 2 diabetes, in children and adolescents. Using nutrient challenges such as oral glucose tolerance test and high-fat mixed macronutrient tolerance test, Dr. Meijer profiles the response of the metabolome to identify characteristics influencing the ability to adapt to a nutrient load. Additionally, she works as a Registered Dietitian in the Weight and Wellness Center at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, presenting the opportunity to translate research into the clinic.
