Center for Energy Balance Journal Club

Transdisciplinary Energy Balance Journal Club is open to all!

Our journal club meets the second Friday of every month from 12-1 p.m. to discuss breaking state-of-the-science research related to Energy Balance. The transdisciplinary journal club on energy balance in cancer brings researchers from multiple disciplines together to examine a different energy balance-related topic each month. Our moderators discuss current research ranging from basic mechanisms of energy balance and cancer, effect of energy balance on clinical outcomes, behavior change and exercise, diet, and obesity, and public health implications. Our intent is to highlight the translational and multi-disciplinary nature of energy balance research and facilitate communication among interested researchers. Future topics include: 

  • Visceral adiposity
  • Selection of animal models for energy balance research
  • Circadian rhythms in energy balance-related behaviors and effects on weight changes 
  • Health disparities related to visceral adiposity
  • And more!

Regular Moderators: Ann Klopp, Susan Schembre, and Rosemarie Schmandt

A healthy lunch will be provided to the first 20 attendees!
