Research Abstract
Dr. Odegaard’s research largely focuses on the patterns, causes and consequences of obesity and insulin resistance, with particular attention to dietary intake. He has concentrated efforts related to aspects of body composition and adipose tissue depots hypothesized to be causal factors in the predominant chronic diseases of the current era. His research considers the life course and employs observational and randomized study designs. Dr. Odegaard enjoys working with clinicians and experts across disciplinary boundaries to answer important questions related to health.
