Translating Energy Balance From Bench to Communities: Application of Parallel Animal-Human Studies
Abstracts describing work in animal models OR patients/healthy individuals to nutrition, exercise/physical activity, and body composition at all phases of pre-clinical to community translation will be considered. Discussion should include the potential for incorporation of parallel studies in other models (i.e. animal research based on clinical or population observations, clinical studies based on animal research, population studies based on clinical or animal data) but existence of these parallel studies is not a prerequisite for consideration.
