obesity


Wendy Chung

Wendy Chung (MD, PhD) is the Kennedy Family Professor of Pediatrics in Medicine at Columbia University… and the Director of the Pediatric Neuromuscular Network Molecular Core, the New York Obesity Center Molecular Genetics Core, Columbia’s Clinical Cancer Program and DISCOVER program and…really it never ends. The busiest woman in genetics takes a few minutes out to talk to us about her early dreams (agricultural science; I kid you not) and the focus of some of her earliest human work: the all-too-human subject of genetics and obesity.
