Causes of obesity: theories, conjectures and evidence
Online and in-person in London
Obesity has been described by the WHO as the largest health threat facing mankind. Obesity is manifestly an issue of energy balance. Yet, there is surprisingly little consensus about why such an energy imbalance develops. This meeting will include presentations by world experts on the plethora of ideas about the mechanisms underlying obesity, and hence how we may tackle it.
The schedule of talks, speaker abstracts, and speaker biographies are available on the organizer's web page. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.
This meeting is intended for researchers in relevant fields.
