Research interests

Louise Baur's current research interests cover many aspects of obesity, prediabetes, nutrition and physical activity in children and adolescents. They include:

  • the effective management of child and adolescent obesity and insulin resistance, including several recently completed community-based RCTs (PEACH, HIKCUPS, Loozit) and hospital-based trials (RESIST)

  • mechanisms and management of obesity-associated complications, including prediabetes, orthopaedic abnormalities and obstructive sleep apnoea

  • the determinants of obesity, including the longitudinal Nepean Study of adolescents in western Sydney

  • obesity in special patient groups eg patients with acquired brain injury or developmental disability

  • population-based approaches to obesity prevention, including early intervention with first-time mothers (Healthy Beginnings Trial; EPOCH collaboration; mHealth study in Shanghai, in collaboration with Fudan University), junior sports sponsorship, changes to marketing of foods etc

  • health service delivery aspects of child and adolescent obesity

  • measurement of physical activity and dietary intake in children.

These studies are being undertaken with a range of collaborators at The Children's Hospital at Westmead, on the wider University campus, in other parts of Sydney and Australia, and internationally.

Louise Baur is an active member of the Prevention Research Collaboration, a research centre based at the University of Sydney with a primary focus on population health aspects of obesity, nutrition and physical activity (website listed above). She is Obesity, Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease Theme Leader for Sydney Medical School. She is also Founding Director of the Australasian Child & Adolescent Obesity Research Network, an Australia-wide collaboration of paediatric obesity researchers (website listed above).

Teaching areas

Louise Baur teaches primarily within the Child and Adolescent Health Rotation of the Sydney Medical Program, as well as the Paediatric Obesity and Nutrition Unit of Study within the Paediatrics and Child Health component of the Sydney Masters of Medicine. Louise Baur also teaches on aspects of paediatric obesity and nutrition within a range of other courses at the University of Sydney, as well as to a range of professional groups at The Children's Hospital at Westmead and elsewhere. In 1999 Louise Baur was awarded a Vice-Chancellor's Excellence in Teaching Award for her contributions to the development of the Sydney Medical Program.
