Frontiers in Diabetes: Neural Control of Metabolic Homeostasis

This virtual program is designed for research scientists, clinicians, and students with an interest in diabetes and obesity.
Specifically, this conference will focus on recent basic and clinical insights regarding bidirectional crosstalk between the brain and peripheral tissues integral to maintaining body weight, glucose and lipid homeostasis. Particular emphasis will be placed on the interactions – and potential genetic mechanistic links – relating to susceptibility to development of obesity, diabetes and related dyslipidemias. Additional areas of focus will include novel potential approaches to the treatment of these metabolic diseases.


At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be better able to:
• Review effects of the central nervous system on body weight, glucose and lipid metabolism.
• Discuss potential mechanisms of crosstalk between somatic tissues and the brain.
• Discuss novel mechanistic links between obesity and metabolic diseases.
