OBESITY SERIES 2020: Marshall McCue, PhD presents case studies using small mammals where 13C-labeled nutrient oxidation is tracked second-by-second in real-time using the newest laser-based stable isotope approaches.
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.

A webinar series focused on late-breaking research and discovery relating to the physiological mechanisms of obesity-related disease.
Tonya Coulthard discusses the SuperArgus PET/CT systems, reviewing both basic and unique imaging capabilities, including real-time imaging of awake animals as well as multiplexed PET imaging of standard and non-standard isotopes.
Leigh Goedeke, PhD reviews spontaneous nonhuman primate (NHP) models of NAFLD and metabolic syndrome as a more clinically-relevant preclinical study platform.
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.
