Noble earns Young Investigator Award from American Society for Nutrition
The Bio-Serv Award in Experimental Animal Nutrition is given for meritorious research in nutrition accomplished by an investigator within 10 years of postgraduate training.
“Dr. Noble’s selection by the American Society for Nutrition as the recipient of the most prestigious Bio-Serv Award in Experimental Animal Nutrition signifies the influential impact of her research contributions to the scientific community,” said Lynn Bailey, the Flatt Professor of Nutritional Sciences and head of the FACS department of nutritional sciences. “Colleagues and administrators at the University of Georgia are so very proud of Dr. Noble’s accomplishments and celebrate her much-deserved national honor.”
Noble’s Nutritional Neurosciences Laboratory uses rodent models to investigate the neurological regulation of feeding behavior such as food impulsivity and binge eating; the neural regulation of body weight and energy expenditure; and the effects of diet and exercise on brain function.
Noble received her master’s degree and Ph.D. in nutrition from the University of Minnesota. She was a postdoctoral researcher at both the University of California-Los Angeles and the University of Southern California, and previously received the Ethan Sims Young Investigator Award from The Obesity Society.
The ASN Foundation awards program recognizes outstanding scientists, clinicians and scholars for significant contributions to nutrition research, education and practice.
Noble will be recognized at the ASN annual meeting in June.
“I’m very honored to be the recipient of the BioServ Award in Experimental Animal Nutrition and am extremely grateful for the fantastic mentors, collaborators, students and staff who have been critical for research that led to this award,” Noble said.
