Talk Description:

The enteroendocrine system represents the largest endocrine network that controls hormonal signals regulating ingestion, digestion, absorption and disposal of nutrients. The mechanisms through which these hormones exert their actions will be discussed. We also demonstrate the benefits and potential risks of gut-based therapies for the treatment of obesity, diabetes and intestinal disorders.
