Jennifer Lovejoy, PhD

Dr. Lovejoy's research interests center on the influence of reproductive hormones on body composition, regional fat distribution, and obesity-related disease. She is currently funded by NIH on one study assessing longitudinal changes in body composition during the menopause transition and another comparing methods for preventing pregnancy-associated obesity. Another strong interest is the impact of dietary fats on insulin resistance and obesity and she recently completed a study examining the acute effects of various fatty acids on insulin action and glucose metabolism.

Dr. Lovejoy has been an active member of The Obesity Society since 1989. She has served on the Membership Committee and was Chair of the Finance Committee from 1998-2000 and was the 2003-2004 Secretary/Treasurer.
