[Live Event] Discover how stem cells could help curb obesity and diabetes

Friday, March 9, 2018 at 1:00pm to 2:00pm


How do stem cells affect the buildup of fat tissue? Can stem cells be manipulated to help curb obesity and diabetes? These are among the topics that will be covered in this live discussion on Friday, March 9 at 1pm EST.  We will also discuss the development and homeostasis of fat tissue and how it regulates systemic metabolism, and explore the genetic tools that can be used to mark, track, and manipulate these cells.

In this one-hour online event with Dr. Daniel Berry, assistant professor in the Division of Nutritional Sciences, you will:

  • Understand how fat tissue controls many aspects of physiology and metabolism
  • Explore how fat stem cells act as key regulators of fat tissue mass
  • Learn how fat stem cells provide therapeutic options for obesity and type 2 diabetes

Join us on Friday, March 9 at 1:00pm EST for Body Fat, Stem Cells and Metabolism.
