Dr. Stadler received a Bachelor’s degree from Davidson College, a Master’s degree in Nutritional Science from Virginia Tech, and a Doctoral degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Iowa.  She completed clinical fellowships in developmental and metabolic nutrition at the Kennedy-Kreiger Institute/Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD, and international nutrition rehabilitation at the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka, Zambia.

Since joining the faculty at OHSU, Dr. Stadler has conducted research in the areas of adult and pediatric weight loss and weight regulation.  She is a co-investigator and OHSU director of the Insight Weight Loss Study and the principle investigator of the Energy Balance Study—studies that explore the metabolic consequences of low and high carbohydrate diets and their impact on energy balance and markers of central appetite and weight regulation.

In January 2008, Dr. Stadler became the Director of the Dietetics & Nutrition Program at OHSU.  She works with the faculty who oversee the Dietetic Internship and Masters Programs in Clinical Nutrition and enjoys mentoring graduate students in their thesis research.
