Dr. Chow is a NIH-funded academic adult endocrinologist at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Chow is an Associate Professor of Medicine and director of the T32 training grant in Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism. Her research interest focuses on clinical/translational research examining the effects of lifestyle interventions for management of obesity, insulin resistance, and prediabetes. Formally trained in clinical research, Dr. Chow has extensive experience conducting in vivo human studies with various interventions (lipid infusion, exercise, diet) and mechanistic physiological measures (U13Cpalmitate to measure lipolysis, 6,6 2H2 glucose during hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp). Currently Dr. Chow has a R01 to examine the effects of time-restricted eating (TRE) on in vivo metabolism, body composition and weight.
