Obesity: a multi discplinary approach to the genetic influence on this global epidemic. After hearing an overview of the problem, speakers will give evidence based on the genetics of eating behaviour, its influence on childhood obesity and treatment ; genome wide association studies identifying genes with a role in obesity, molecular mechanisms underlying the central control of food intake and body weight; and an appreciation of genetic factors over the environment in obesity. Speakers will also inform us of diseases associated with obesity.
