Metabolism & Endocrinology Metabolism & Endocrinology

Organised by Willis Samson, Saint Louis University, USA

Wednesday 13 July 2011
Lecture theatre to be confirmed

The speakers will demonstrate how endocrine factors exert complementary actions to regulate glucose homeostasis, by describing the sites (the where) and cellular mechanisms of action (the how) of these factors, with particular attention to pancreatic factors recently described to exert potent actions in both brain (hypothalamus and brainstem) and pancreas.
