Third PostDoc Invited Speaker

We will be hosting the next Post-Doc Invited speaker the 16th of November: Dr Nicholas Morton from the University of Edinburgh

Dr Morton is interested in how genes predispose to, or protect from, the adverse metabolic effects of the modern “obesogenic lifestyle”. He believe understanding the intrinsic mechanisms that allow some people to remain lean, healthy and age successfully will shed a light on new therapeutic avenues for metabolic dysfunction and its associated diseases. He recently published a study identifying the thiosulfate sulfurtransferase gene as an adipocytes-expressed antidiabetic target in mice selected for leanness ( .

If you are interested in meeting the speaker, for a small group meeting or a 1-2-1 meeting please contact Helen Figueira.

Thank you
