Physiology of Obesity: From Mechanisms to Medicine (Co-sponsored by APS)

Symposium — Tuesday, April 9, 2019 — 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM — Convention Center, Room W308CD
The Physiological Society-UK (PHYSOC) — Chair: Peter Aldiss — Co-Chair: Jo Edward Lewis

Today, over 1.9 billion adults worldwide are overweight or obese. By 2025, this is projected to increase to 2.7 billion with an estimated annual cost of 1.2 trillion USD in addition to an increase in metabolic syndrome, type II diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

This symposium aims to recognize and encourage outstanding early career researchers (ECRs) at the start of their careers and to connect the next generation of leaders in the field of obesity.
