Adipose Tissue in Health and Disease Benzon Symposium No. 58
August 27-30, 2012 at Hotel Skt Petri, Copenhagen, Denmark
The scope of the 58th Benzon Symposium is to bring together both young and experienced scientists interested the biology and physiological role of adipocytes. The Symposium will cover adipose tissue biology from adipocyte development, over the regulation of adipocyte metabolism and function by external and internal signals, to the impact of the adipose tissue on whole body physiology. All sessions will have a strong focus on the molecular understanding of the processes but will at the same time touch upon the physiological and medical implications.
The Symposium will be a 4-day scientific meeting, Monday to Thursday 9AM-6PM. The format will be a combination of state-of-the-art lectures by invited speakers, selected oral-poster presentations and poster sessions.
