The Cardiovascular, Diabetes & Metabolic Disorders (CVDM) Research Center cordially invites you to participate in its sixth annual obesity incubator session.

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 presentation by special guest Rachel Carmody, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University, followed by a keynote presentation from Rudolph L. Leibel, M.D., Professor of Pediatrics and Medicine and Director, Division of Molecular Genetics and the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center at Columbia University.
