Global Obesity Prevention Center

Advanced Research Techniques

vbl2We use the latest in high-tech modeling and simulation techniques.

Technology—including advanced computerized modeling—plays an integral role in our efforts to understand obesity and the complex systems and processes behind it.

Our Center works closely with faculty and research teams to develop simulation models designed to study and tackle obesity on multiple scales. Simulation models such as SimCity are a digital prototype of a physical model used to predict performance in the real world.

Some of our approaches or methodoligies include:
