Among her various community roles, she is a Director of World Vision Australia and Advisor of the Obesity Research Chair, King Saud University (website listed above). She is also a member of the Governing Board of the Sydney Children's Hospitals Network. In 2010, Louise Baur was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) "for service to medicine, particularly in the field of paediatric obesity as a researcher and academic, and to the community through support for a range of children's charities"

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 see website above; 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 involved in several aspects of the University's Charles Perkins Centre. 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 and supervision

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.
