Post-graduate course “Temperature and Metabolism: Implications for nutritional studies”

1-3 September 2018, Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK
  • Target group PhD students and postdoctoral researchers interested in whole body metabolism and translatability from mouse to human.
  • The objective of the course is to provide information about topics such as: – How does ambient temperature affect metabolism (human and mouse) and the outcome of nutritional studies? – Measurements of energy metabolism. – Use of indirect calorimetry for nutritional studies. – Human and animal translational aspectsIn addition, the course provides an excellent opportunity for networking with other PhD students and early career researchers and for developing skills in undertaking collaborative research.
