Focus on Faculty: Claire de La Serre
BHSI member Claire de La Serre is eager to discuss her research relating to isolating the triggers of overeating and learning about diet-driven abnormal communication between the gut and the brain. Serre is also an asset to her students as far as keeping them up-to-date on the latest research findings in foods and nutrition, in fact, she was herself once a PhD student in nutrition at the University of California; she then went on to complete her postdoctoral fellowship at John Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore. By making it a priority to stay-up-to-date with the latest research findings in scientific literature, Serre encourages her students to carefully analyze research papers themselves and offer up their own interpretations of data.
