This Key Lecture from Dr. Holly Ingraham, Professor at University of California San Fransisco School of Medicine, will focus on the female brain and how it controls a wide-range of sex-specific physiological responses. Dr. Ingraham will discuss her work using mouse models coupled with genomics and pharmacogenetics to investigate the estrogen-sensitive neuronal populations that drive spontaneous physical activity and other metabolic functions. Join us to learn about research that may shed light on sex differences observed in humans, and provide novel clues for obesity prevention and treatment in women in the future.
