Experience and Current Work
Dr. Rachel Radin’s research interests include clarifying the biopsychosocial processes that contribute to eating behavior and metabolic health in adults. She currently has an F32 National Research Service Award from the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, to investigate the impact of a mindfulness intervention on stress-related eating and on endocrine and autonomic profiles of stress reactivity. Dr. Radin ultimately aims to develop complementary and integrative health interventions to improve the health of individuals with obesity and other health-related conditions.
Dr. Radin previously worked jointly with doctors Marian Tanofsky-Kraff at Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and Jack Yanovski at the National Institute of Child and Human Development, studying pediatric eating behaviors, including stress-related eating and metabolic co-morbidities. As part of her dissertation, she received an F31 award from the National Institute of Mental Health to investigate psychophysiological stress reactivity profiles among youth.
