    Regents' Universities Collaborate to Study Obesity

    Twenty new faculty will be hired in seven different colleges to work with existing faculty at the University of Iowa to study both the challenges of the obesity epidemic and the expanding needs of the study of genetics and genomics, UI officials said Thursday.
    The two areas of study are the newest approved endeavors under the university’s five-year cluster hire initiative, “Meeting the Grand Challenges of the 21st Century.” Through this initiative the university will hire faculty in interdisciplinary groups to build on UI strengths and help the university achieve distinction in targeted areas.
    Under the direction of Dr. Allyn Mark, professor and Roy J. Carver Chair in Internal Medicine, and Charles Brenner, Roy J. Carver Chair of Biochemistry and head of the Department of Biochemistry, the UI Obesity Initiative will focus on two areas of obesity research: community, behavioral and economic research; and basic biomedical research.
    Ten new faculty members will be hired to work with existing faculty in five colleges: Liberal Arts and Sciences; Public Health; Nursing; the Carver College of Medicine; and the Tippie College of Business. They will work with faculty in these and other colleges to study their interests in obesity.
    The UI Obesity Initiative also will include collaboration with both Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa through ISU’s Nutrition and Wellness Research Center and the Youth Fitness and Obesity Institute at UNI.

    No wonder camels have those huge lumps in their mid-section.
