Dr. Jen Meijer's research laboratory explores how our ability to metabolize the food we eat is influenced by disease states, such as obesity and metabolic diseases. Her lab specializes on studying the acute response to meals, assessing dynamics of metabolism by metabolomics and respiratory exchange ratios. In the Weight and Wellness Center, Dr. Meijer leads research efforts to assess the clinical impact of new obesity management practices. She practices as a Registered Dietitian within the Weight and Wellness Center.
