Beige and Brown Fat: Basic Biology and Novel Therapeutics

This meeting focuses on new pathways controlling brown fat development and thermogenesis. We will delve into the types of brown fat cells, beige, classical brown and others. There is special emphasis on emerging approaches, both biological and chemical, that can manipulate these cells for therapeutic purposes. 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. This will also bridges the Obesity and Diabetes communities, and leads to pharma/academic collaborations.
