Lectures and seminars SRP Diabetes Talk by Dr. Patrick Seale University of Pennsylvania, USA
Welcome to a SRP Diabetes Talk with Dr. Patrick Seale from the University of Pennsylvania, USA, 15:00-16:00 in Biomedicum 1.
"Mesenchymal progenitor cells and fat tissue remodelling"
Dr. Patrick Seale, Institute of Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism, University of Pennsylvania, USA
The research of Dr Seale aims to understand the mechanisms that control the fate and function of adipocytes under various contexts, including development, cold exposure and obesity. He has discovered several key transcriptional regulators of brown fat cells, including PRDM16 and EBF2. Recent studies in his lab have focused on adipose tissue progenitor cells and fibrosis responses.
