The List of Reviewers lists all present, whether permanent or temporary, to provide the full scope of expertise present on that date. Lists are posted 30 days before the meeting and are tentative, pending any last minute changes.

Review Dates

Membership Panel

The membership panel is a list of chartered members only.

Topics


  • The regulation of glucose, fat, and protein metabolism in the whole body and specific organs (e.g., liver, skeletal muscle, adipose, brain) in the setting of diabetes or obesity. Studies may also involve the effects of hormone action, mitochondrial energetics, inflammation, and cytokines that mediate energy and regulate nutrient homeostasis.
  • Energy expenditure, thermogenesis, physical activity, and exercise in the context of the prevention, pathogenesis or treatment of human obesity or diabetes
  • Body composition, the mechanisms which regulate it and the metabolic consequences of distribution patterns of adipose tissue, and microbiota.
  • Prevention and treatment of obesity and diabetes utilizing lifestyle, pharmacologic or surgical interventions.
  • Central nervous system regulation of energy intake, energy expenditure, and nutrient partitioning.
  • Genomic approaches that are designed to address questions regarding physiology or pathogenic mechanisms of diabetes and/or obesity.
  • Effects of gestational diabetes, maternal/fetal nutrition and metabolism on childhood or adult obesity and/or diabetes, including treatment of maternal diabetes.

Shared Interests and Overlaps

There are shared interests with Integrative Physiology of Obesity and Diabetes (IPOD) in the investigation of diabetes, obesity, and metabolism. Applications that focus on human and clinical studies of the pathogenesis or treatment of diabetes or obesity may be reviewed by CIDO. Applications that use cells or animal models to study metabolic disturbances of obesity and diabetes may be reviewed by IPOD.

There are shared interests with Cellular Aspects of Diabetes and Obesity (CADO) in the investigation of type 1 and type 2 diabetes metabolic regulation. Applications that focus on human interventions and clinical trials to understand factors that regulate obesity and diabetes may be reviewed by CIDO. Applications that utilize cell or animal models to study mechanisms that regulate obesity or diabetes may be reviewed by CADO.

There are shared interests with Integrative Nutrition and Metabolic Processes (INMP) in the investigation of nutritional prevention or regulation of diabetes and obesity. Applications that focus on human and clinical studies on nutritional prevention and contribution to metabolic diseases may be reviewed by CIDO. Applications focused on nutrition and macronutrient effects on obesity or diabetes in animal models may be reviewed by INMP.

There are shared interests with Pregnancy and Neonatology Study Section (PN) in the investigation of obesity and gestational diabetes. Applications that focus on maternal nutrition and gestational diabetes effects on childhood or adult obesity may be reviewed by CIDO. Applications focused on understanding complications to pregnancy, fetal development, or the neonate associated with gestational diabetes or obesity may be reviewed by PN.

There are shared interests with Psychosocial Risk and Disease Prevention (PRDP) in the investigation of obesity risks factors. Applications focused on biological and physiological obesity risk factors may be reviewed by CIDO. Applications focused on psychosocial/behavioral understanding of obesity risks or weight loss maintenance may be reviewed by PRDP.

There are shared interests with Kidney, Nutrition, Obesity and Diabetes (KNOD) in the investigation of diabetes and obesity prevention. Applications that focus on factors that modulate obesity and diabetes prevention and treatment may be reviewed by CIDO. Applications focused on epidemiology and genetic epidemiology of diabetes and obesity may be reviewed by KNOD.

There are shared interests with Genetics of Health and Disease (GHD) in the investigation of genomic regulation of obesity and diabetes. Applications that focus on the understanding of genomic regulation of diabetes and obesity pathogenesis may be reviewed by CIDO. Applications focused on discovery of genes or functional analysis of obesity or diabetes pathogenesis may be reviewed by GHD.
