MF Rolland-Cachera is a doctor in nutrition. Her main field of research is the epidemiology of childhood obesity, body composition, nutritional determinants of obesity, treatment and prevention.
In the early 80’s she published the first BMI growth charts and developed the concept of “Adiposity rebound” predicting the risk of obesity. She conducted several studies on nutrition and growth and showed that high protein and low fat intakes in early life were associated with an increased risk of developing later overweight.
She participates in various research programs and teaches in Universities in France and other countries.
She was the vice president of the European Childhood Obesity Group (ECOG) 2008-2010.
She has published around 80 articles in main international journals and obtained 3 Awards.
