Dr. Lauren Woodie is a Postdoc Trainee in the Institute for Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism at the University of Pennsylvania. She completed her PhD in Nutrition Science at Auburn University with Dr. Michael Greene, the director of the Auburn University Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Laboratory. Her projects at Auburn focused on the effects of specific nutrient consumption on diurnal metabolism. Here she investigated the physio-metabolic effects of time-restricted calorie consumption in male mouse models of Western diet-induced obesity. Presently, Dr. Woodie is in the lab of Dr. Mitchell Lazar at Penn where she is continuing her training to delineate the mechanisms of organismal circadian homeostasis.
