Dr. Munn-Chernoff is an Assistant Professor for the Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders in the Department of Psychiatry. She has three major programs of research. First, she uses twin and other genetically informative samples to understand genetic and environmental vulnerability for eating disorders and eating disorder symptoms. Dr. Munn-Chernoff’s second focus is on understanding the comorbidity of eating disorders and alcohol use disorder from a genetic perspective. Finally, a more recent interest is on applying novel methods to understand psychiatric and substance use comorbidity.
