Dr. Cooper's research encompasses a number of areas ranging from human obesity to athletic performance. Her primary research interests are aimed at addressing metabolic and satiety hormone responses to different nutrients and/or exercise in humans. For more information, see the Human Nutrition Laboratory.
My research lab is currently examining the metabolic and endocrine responses to high-fat meals or diets of varying fatty acid composition in normal weight and obese women. We are particularly interested in fat metabolism and hunger and satiety hormone responses to these meals or diets.
