Event Details

The Cardiovascular, Diabetes & Metabolic Disorders (CVDM) Research Center cordially invites you to participate in its 9th annual obesity incubator session. The goal of this session is to bring together BWH clinicians and researchers working in the fields of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease to address this challenging public health crisis by promoting cross-collaborative research efforts and stimulating new ideas for further investigation.

To promote vibrant scientific discussions, the plenary session will feature short talks by selected junior investigators in the field of obesity research, followed by a keynote presentation from Frank A.J.L. Scheer, PhD, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School (HMS) and the Director of the Medical Chronobiology Program (MCP) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), Boston. Dr. Scheer’s work focuses on influences of the endogenous circadian system and its disruption—such as with shift work—on cardiovascular, pulmonary, and metabolic regulation and disease states, including hypertension, asthma, obesity and diabetes.
