Event Overview
Welcome message:
The epidemic of obesity and diabetes has become a world-wide health risk. These metabolic disorders are a direct threat to the health and economic well-being of many nations. Unfortunately, education about diet and exercise are not sufficient to meet this emergency and new therapies are badly needed. Brown fat has emerged as one of the few genuinely new approaches to these problems. Brown fat exists in most or all adult humans and can dissipate caloric energy and improve both obesity and diabetes in experimental animals.

This meeting will focus on new pathways controlling brown fat development and thermogenesis. We will delve into the types of brown fat cells, beige, classical brown and others. We will also put a special emphasis on emerging approaches, both biological and chemical, that can manipulate these cells for therapeutic purposes. It is our hope and belief that this meeting can nucleate expanded efforts in both academia and pharma to explore this promising research area.

There has not been a Keystone Symposia conference dedicated to brown fat. While there has been a session here and there at the Obesity meeting, the science and the biomedical needs warrant this new and focused conference. Of course, this will also bridge the Obesity and Diabetes communities, and lead to pharma/academic collaborations.
