Project Description

Obesity and overweight are modern epidemics that affect two-thirds of Australian adult for which there is no effective therapeutic medicine. Prolonged exposure to cold environment augment energy burning in the body which can potentially suppress weight gain. In this project, I aim to investigate how cold environment induces energy expenditure and identify novel avenue for the treatment of obesity.
