Conférence mensuelle - Matthias TschöpNovel ways to treat obesity and diabetes

Abstract :

Matthias Tschöp has discovered the role of ghrelin in the control of body weight and described the endocrine mechanisms which mediate these effects. His work is an outstanding contribution to our knowledge of the complex neuroendocrine circuits that control energy homeostasis under different clinical conditions.
