Exploring the Role of Brown Fat in Humans 2014
The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) announces a workshop focused on elucidating the roles of recently described brown and beige/brite fat in people. Speakers will describe state-of-the-art technology for monitoring human brown adipose tissue (hBAT) mass and function, and present recent basic and clinical data. Plenary talks, selected “hot topic” presentations, and a poster session will provide a forum for interactions among basic scientists and clinical researchers.
- Physiological Functions and Clinical Relevance of hBAT: The 2013 Perspective
- Classical and Inducible Brown, Beige, Brite, B/B Fat in Humans
- Measuring hBAT Activity: Pushing the Limits of Position Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT)
- hBAT as a Therapeutic Target: Investigations in Different Populations
