The research of Deeptha Sukumar, PhD, aims to better understand the interplay of bone and energy metabolism in different populations. Her doctoral and postdoctoral work largely focused on understanding bone metabolism in obesity and during weight loss. There are inherent differences in bone and energy metabolism in different ethnic populations, and Dr. Sukumar's goal is to better understand mechanisms and the role of nutrition in explaining these differences in various groups.
