Special Guest Lecture

As a special add-on to the MBiotech 10 Year Gala on Thursday, June 7, the MBiotech Program hosted an afternoon scientific talk at 1pm in DV3130 by our keynote speaker, Dr. Ehud Ur, titled "A Short History Of Fat". 

Abstract: Two thirds of Canadians are overweight or obese, and a growing population of individuals are either suffering currently from attendant disability or at risk for serious complications of this metabolic disorder. This talk will help understand the current demographics of obesity, both in Canada and globally, as well as the relationship of the disorder to pathophysiological complications. We will also explore the etiology of weight excess, as well as some solutions to the problem.

All welcome!
