Event description

Description

The control of food intake and metabolism is achieved through a successful dialogue between peripheral tissues and the central nervous system. The homeostatic elements of this process are underpinned by the brain’s ability to detect and process functionally relevant peripheral signals and to subsequently initiate appropriate changes in behaviour and metabolism. Enhancing our understanding of these complex multi-organ interactions is therefore paramount to the development of improved treatment methods.

The goal of this meeting is to provide early-career researchers (undergraduates, graduates, postdoctoral research fellows) investigating the processes underpinning energy homeostasis with an opportunity to share and exchange knowledge. In doing so, this meeting will bring together scientists from a wide range of backgrounds to foster the multidisciplinary approach we believe is required for the successful investigation of highly complex, multi component processes like energy balance. The wide variety of knowledge and technical expertise present at the meeting is intended to broaden attendees’ research horizons and to encourage collaborative and networking opportunities that they would not otherwise have considered.

NOSER is a satellite event for the Neurobiology of Obesity Symposium (NOS) held in Ardoe House, Aberdeen from the 16th-18th August (https://www.abdn.ac.uk/events/nos-aberdeen/). We encourage NOSER delegates to attend and present their work at both events to more fully take advantage of scientific exchange and networking opportunities.

Coffee/tea breaks, lunch and wine with light bites networking poster session included with free registration.

Abstracts are limited to 300 words. Poster boards will accommodate A0 posters in portrait format.

Abstract deadline: 1st August.
