Marc Cornier, MD

Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine


 

Research Interests:

Dr. Cornier is interested in defining how obesity resistant humans respond centrally, behaviorally, and metabolically to positive or negative energy balance. His primary focus is to evaluate the effects of energy imbalance on neuronal activation using functional magnetic resonance imaging. Dr Cornier’s long term goal is to gain a better understanding of the central regulation of ingestive behavior. In addition, he is interested in understanding the adaptations to changes in energy balance in thin, obese-resistant as compared to individuals at risk for weight gain and obesity in our environment.
