Neuronal Control of Appetite, Metabolism and Weight
joint with Adipose Tissue Biology
Organizer(s): Kevin L. Grove, Michael A. Cowley and Rexford S. Ahima
Date: January 24 - 29, 2010
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Sponsored by Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited
Summary of Meeting:
The primary goal of this meeting is to provide the most cutting edge research related to the central control of body weight homeostasis. For this meeting we have tried to make a balance program with established and young investigators; very basic up to clinical studies, including a session discussing the next generation pharmaceuticals; and we have made a special effort to balance for gender and minorities. While this program focuses on the central control of appetite and energy homeostasis, with several sessions commonly represented at this meeting, we have added some new areas of focuses, including a session on developmental programming, immunology and inflammation, reward, and atypical model organisms. Several of these sessions fit very well with the joint session of adipogenesis. Combined, we believe that the proposed program will meet the excellence that this meeting has had in past years.
