 ORGANIZATION: The NYU Langone Comprehensive Program on Obesity aims to better understand, treat and manage obesity at the population and clinical levels, and strives to prevent and cure the disease within one generation. Obesity is complex and multi-faceted, with genetic, environmental, social, and medical causes. This complexity may be why we currently have limited evidence-based approaches for the prevention, treatment and management of obesity. To better address obesity, we must develop a more complete understanding of how health behaviors are shaped through integrating cutting edge observations and discoveries from population health, clinical and basic science. We work across four domains: multidisciplinary research, data science, clinical care, and education. Our cross-cutting research program engages researchers across the NYU Langone Medical Center (NYULMC). Drawing on our strengths, we will create a “DataBridge” capable of integrating large amounts of complex data to determine unique causal pathways and strategies for treating and preventing obesity. Key insights will be translated into real, evidence-based obesity prevention, treatment, and management solutions.
