Dr. Baron is Associate Professor at Rush University Medical Center. The goal of Dr. Baron’s research program is to understand the links between the biological and behavioral aspects of circadian desynchrony to weight regulation and then translate her findings to the clinical setting in novel weight loss interventions. Dr. Baron was awarded a K23 grant for the project in 2011 entitled “Circadian timing, sleep, and adiposity” from the NHLBI. The aims of Dr. Baron’s K23 project are to test the associations between circadian timing and desynchrony with body composition, diet and exercise behaviors.
