James Dorling, PhD Pennington Biomedical Research Center
James Dorling is a postdoctoral researcher at Pennington Biomedical Research Center. He completed his Ph.D. at Loughborough University where he studied the impact of obesity-related genes and exercise on appetite, eating behaviors, and appetite-related hormones. Since graduating, he has been conducting his postdoctoral training in a position funded by the American Heart Association. His training has focused on studying the influence of lifestyle regimens—chiefly caloric restriction and physical activity—on weight, eating behaviors, and markers of aging. Dr. Dorling’s long-term research goals are to examine: (1) the effects of innovative lifestyle strategies on markers of aging; and (2) the critical modulators of appetite and eating behaviors.
