    This conference is aimed at presenting recent developments in the field of adipogenesis research. Animal studies suggest that Brown Adipose Tissue (BAT) levels are associated with diet-induced obesity and the effects of aging. This symposium will explore the origin of BAT, how White Adipose Tissue (WAT) may be converted into BAT-like tissue, and how to enable the pursuit of BAT as a therapeutic target. The audience includes students and scientists working on fat metabolism and nutrition research and its application in preventive and curative medicine.

    *Reception to follow.
