Keynote Lecture "The contribution of human adipocytes to metabolic health"

by Kirsty Spalding, PhD,

Department of Cell and Molecular Biology,

Karolinska Institutet

will take place on Tuesday, September 21st, 2021, 17:15 via webex:

This lecture is part of the 8th ABC Summer School, taking part at Hoghehus, Koberg 2, in the old city centre of Lübeck.

Originally from Australia, Kirsty completed her PhD in the field of neuroscience at the University of Western Australia. This was followed by postdoctoral studies at the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, where she switched from studying neuronal cell death to neuronal birth. During the later stages of her postdoctoral period she started a side project looking at fat cell turnover in human adipose tissue. This project developed in to several more projects and now the major interest of her research group is the turnover and maintenance of human adipose tissue, in health and pathology.
