Most recently, he has focused on interventions promoting a healthful dietary pattern that is associated in the literature with reduced rates for many chronic diseases (cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer) and with lower rates of premature mortality. In 2019, he and Dr. Carmen Samuel-Hodge as Co-PIs, received funding from NIH (National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute) to conduct a randomized trial assessing a weight loss intervention promoting a healthful dietary pattern.
Dr. Keyserling is an active primary care internist and preceptor for internal medicine residents at the UNC General Medicine Clinic in Chapel Hill. He also is a longstanding member of the UNC Institutional Review Board.
