The Bridges Lab at Obesity Week 2017
Innocence, JeAnna and Dave are all traveling to Obesity Week to attend the annual conference of the Obesity Society. We are looking forward to hearing the newest research into obesity, the mechanisms that drive it and the problems associated with it. This year our group is presenting a couple of posters:
