Dr. Sarah Stanley and Dr. Alexandra Alvarsson discuss the use of whole-organ assessment for the comprehensive examination of pancreatic innervation, revealing close interactions between nerves and islets and dynamic regulation of islet innervation in diabetes.
Julio Ayala, PhD and Matthew Robinson, PhD share their research focusing on feeding behavior in mice and the effects of stress and exercise on metabolism. They will discuss neuronal activity and high-fat diets as well as mitochondrial remodeling and exercise training in mouse models of obesity.
In this final installment of our Obesity 2020 webinar series, Dr. Lee Kaplan discusses late-breaking research and reviews various mechanisms of action of bariatric and metabolic surgery and how they affect the regulation of energy balance and metabolic function.
Register for the 36th Annual Academy of Surgical Research Virtual Meeting to join surgical research professionals around the world in a two-day exploration of surgical techniques, research applications, technology advancements and industry trends.
Experts discuss the synergies and implementation of state-of-the-art hybrid PET/MR technology and the new avenues of exploration it affords in the fields of neuroscience, cancer, and metabolic disease through to dual molecular probe development.
OBESITY SERIES 2020: Lora Heisler, PhD discusses the unique brain circuits that are controllers of body weight, reviews how our genes impact our waistline and explains how obesity medications leverage basic neurobiology to reduce hunger and decrease body weight.
Jordan Fuqua discusses how autophagy and proteolytic processes are regulated in skeletal muscle, specifically looking at ULK1 and ULK2 and their roles in maintaining skeletal muscle homeostasis, morphology, protein aggregate degradation and autophagy.
Andrew Puca, PhD discusses techniques for optimizing preclinical diabetes research in spontaneously diabetic NHPs, with a focus on stress free assessments of glucose measurement and response using continuous glucose monitoring and the banana tolerance test.
Join Dr. Melanie White for a discussion on basic isolated Langendorff heart principles, key experimental design considerations, core technology requirements and best practice tips to support consistency and validation of your research.
