Bio/Research

Dr. El Khoury’s research interests primarily focus on the role of functional ingredients/foods in the regulation of appetite, food intake, glycemia and metabolism in healthy individuals and individuals with nutrition-related disorders including overweight/obesity, hyperinsulinemia and the metabolic syndrome.

Another major research interest is sports nutrition, within which, she is working on two lines of research: 1) exploring novel biomarkers for the metabolic syndrome, and their modulation by functional foods and/or physical activity, both in pediatric and adult populations; and 2) investigating the prevalence and psychosocial determinants of dietary supplement use among university athlete and non-athlete students, gym exercisers and other populations at risk, and designing nutrition education programs to improve knowledge, attitude and awareness on dietary supplements in these populations.
