“Mechanisms of beige adipocyte formation and maintenance”

Yuwei Jiang, PhD 
Assistant Professor
Department of Physiology and Biophysics
University of Illinois at Chicago

The induction of thermogenic beige adipocytes in white adipose tissue is a promising avenue for the treatment of obesity and Type 2 diabetes. In this seminar, I will discuss the cell origins of beige adipocytes, and then present a novel mechanism regulating beige adipocyte formation and maintenance that could be developed therapeutically.
