Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor John Speakman FMedSci FRS.
Obesity has been described by the WHO as the largest health threat facing mankind. Obesity is manifestly an issue of energy balance. Yet, there is surprisingly little consensus about why such energy imbalance develops. This meeting will include presentations by world experts on the plethora of ideas about the mechanisms underlying obesity, and hence how we may tackle it.
More information about the schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available soon. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.
