Symphony of Signals: Body-Brain Interactions in Stereo

In this two-day symposium, we will explore the scientific interface between neuroscience and endocrinology. We will shed new light on how the brain orchestrates metabolic homeostasis in health and pathologies like obesity and type 2 diabetes, and how patients with altered brain function are predisposed to developing cardiometabolic disease. In addition, we will decipher how peripheral signals affect the brain’s ability to maintain energy homeostasis, and how exploitation of this knowledge can lead to future therapies.

Importantly, this symposium will strengthen the intersection of two flagship educational institutions in Denmark, namely the Danish Diabetes and Endocrine Academy (DDEA) and Neuroscience Academy Denmark (NAD) to ultimately lead to more interdisciplinary research and training activities.
