Registration Deadline: April 18, 2014
 
Guest Speaker: Bruce Blumberg, Ph.D. (University of California at Irvine, Irvine, CA)
Dr. Blumberg initially described the steroid and xenobiotic receptor, SXR or PXR (NR1I2). His lab has been at the forefront of understanding biology and mechanisms of environmental toxicants with particular emphasis on endocrine disruptors. Recently the Blumberg lab’s work on understanding the effects of gestational diet and exposure to toxicants (e.g., tributyltin) on development and obesity in offspring has received widespread media coverage and increased public awareness of environmental obesogens and the heritability of obesity risk.
Title of Presentation: Impacts in of gestational diet and toxicant exposure on obesity risk in offspring
