Gene Eating with Dr Giles Yeo on Tuesday 12 November; doors open 6:00pm, talk starts at 6:30.
Giles Yeo's research group at the University of Cambridge is trying to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the central control of food intake and body-weight. They are seeking to understand the physiological role of known genetic modifiers influencing food intake and body-weight. They are studying the hypothalamus which appears to have a crucial role in modulating appetitive behaviour.
Giles is author of the popular book 'Gene Eating: The Story of Human Appetite' (2018). This event has been arranged in conjunction with the Society for Endocrinology, which is holding its annual meeting in Brighton this year.
**Please note that this event is happening on a Tuesday and at an earlier time than usual, due to a music event starting at 8:30 in the space below.**
