Chinese Connections

 

A major International Congress of Endocrinology took place in Beijing, China in the first week of September. This was a meeting involving thousands of doctors and scientists working on hormone problems and weight problems. Professor Farooqi gave one of the Plenary Lectures at this prestigious meeting, focusing on our work in obesity. This was a great opportunity to share our work and ideas for future collaborations with a large audience, many of whom have not considered genetic causes of obesity before.

 

 

The presentation was featured in a number of major national newspapers in China who interviewed Professor Farooqi and then presented that information to a large Chinese and international audience. Communicating ideas and new research findings with the rest of the world is a vital part of research. We look forward to further exciting developments and opportunities with colleagues in China.
