“CNS regulation of spontaneous physical activity in animal models and the impact on obesity resistance," Catherine M. Kotz, PhD, FTOS, Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Integrative Biology and Physiology, University of Minnesota, Acting Associate Director of Research, GRECC , Minneapolis VA Health Care System, Minneapolis, MN, Vice President, The Obesity Society
Spontaneous physical activity (SPA) behavior, or the drive to move, is initiated by brain centers and could therefore be therapeutically targeted. A major goal of our work is to understand the brain circuitry driving SPA, so that obesity therapies based on SPA can be considered.
"SOMAmers and SOMAscan: How Broad Proteomics Can Lead to More Understanding of Human Biology" Larry Gold, PhD Founder and Chairman of the Board, and former CEO of SomaLogic
While many animals use the earth's magnetic field to navigate their environment, much remains unknown about its molecular and cellular basis. We will present insights into the behavioral, cellular, and molecular basis for magnetoreception yielded by the tiny nematode worm, C. elegans.
