      Ellen Demerath received her Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from the University of Pennsylvania and is Professor of Epidemiology and Community Health at the University of Minnesota, School of Public Health in the United States.  Her research is at the interface of nutrition, human biology, and child development, and seeks to understand how maternal and early-life nutritional factors alter health trajectories across the life course. Her current studies focus on maternal nutrition and gestational diabetes in shaping human breast milk composition, identifying nutritional indicators of preterm infant growth that predict neurodevelopmental outcomes, and development of body composition reference curves for infants.

      Dr. Demerath has published over 200 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on human growth, nutrition, and obesity, and her research has been continuously funded by United States National Institutes of Health since 2005.  She has participated in expert panels on nutrition during pregnancy and infant adiposity sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and the National Academy of Sciences. Since 2013, she has directed the University of Minnesota Driven to Discover Research Facility, an innovative community outreach program that supports a wide range of human subjects research involving over 10,000 community participants per year.
