Hull Research Laboratory
Dr. Holly Hull's research laboratory studies the developmental origins of health and disease.
Dr. Hull's NIH-funded research laboratory strives to understand the developmental origins of health and disease. Her expertise includes body composition assessment, how weight gain influences fat accretion across the lifespan, interventions to improve diet quality and health of women during pregnancy and assessing how the time surrounding pregnancy influences the short- and long-term health of mother and baby.
Dr. Hull conducts dietary interventions in pregnant women to understand ways to normalize weight gain and fat accretion and improve maternal and infant nutritional status to prevent disease development. Her studies follow the mother/offspring dyad starting from pregnancy and into postpartum and follow the offspring through childhood and adolescence to understand drivers of obesity, excess adiposity accrual and chronic disease development.
Preventing excessive weight gain and maternal and infant fat accretion (SPROUT study)
The purpose of this study is to learn if consuming a high fiber diet will reduce gestational weight gain and maternal and infant fat accretion. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
