“Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. Over 60 percent of the population can be classified as overweight or obese, placing them at risk for a large number of chronic diseases, including insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes,” says Sheila Collins, Ph.D., professor at SBP’s Lake Nona campus.

“There is a critical need for novel approaches to treating obesity—in particular, agents acting to increase energy expenditure would be valuable.”

Read the article in the Orlando Sentinel by Naseem S. Miller about how Collins is studying hormones produced by the heart to prevent obesity and possibly the myriad of disorders that come with it.
