Understanding the Origins of Obesity: From Basic Science to Early Clinical Prevention

Published on 25/04/2016

Taking place on 7th May 2016 at the University of Granada, Spain, the 'Understanding the Origins of Obesity' International Symposium will focus on the current understanding of the biological processes involved in foetal programming of obesity and its co-morbidities. 

Under the framework of the EarlyNutrition EU Project, which includes several DynaHEALTH Partners, a multidisciplinary group of scientists will try to address how genetic and environmental factors will impact early life, determining the risk of disease during child- and adulthood. Research is focused on the identification of health determinants to develop future preventive treatments and individualised therapies, particularly connected to obesity and related diseases. 

DynaHEALTH partners presenting sessions during the symposium include Professor Cristina Campoy, Dr Ricardo Rueda, Professor Sylvain Sebert, Professor Vincent Jaddoe and EarlyNutrition Project Coordinator, Professor Berthold Koletzko.
