Dr. Lisa Germeroth

I am a principal investigator on an NIDDK-funded K23 examining the effects of a memory-updating intervention, known as retrieval-extinction training, on craving for and intake of high calorie foods. I grew-up in the Rochester, NY area and received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University at Buffalo. I completed my clinical psychology internship at the Charleston Consortium/Medical University of South Carolina. I initially joined the University of Pittsburgh Department of Psychiatry as a postdoctoral scholar on the Cardiovascular Behavioral Medicine T32 training program. My research interests include factors driving overweight/obesity and eating behavior.

 

Fun fact: I was bit by a (very small) shark in Clearwater, Florida several years ago while at a professional conference.
