ExAdEx-Innov at European Congress on Obesity 2024

Scientific work performed by ExAdEx-Innov researchers and collaborators will be presented during European Congress on Obesity ECO 2024

Latest work on adipose tissue and obesity performed by our researchers and collaborators has been selected for a poster presentation at the 31st European Congress on Obesity (ECO) 2024 in Venice, Italy.

Poster presentation will take place during the G-communications sessions on May 13th and 14th.

The results shown during ECO 2024 open important perspectives for the development of a clinically-relevant human adipose tissue model for obesity that can thus be used to accelerate the development of molecules counteracting pathological remodelling of adipose tissue as observed in obesity and to identify novel molecules converting the adipose tissue of donors with obesity into a tissue capable of energy expenditure.

The work presented at ECO 2024 has been performed in collaboration with Université Côte d’Azur, the Digestive Surgery Department of Centre Hospitalier Universitaire (CHU) de Nice directed by Professor Antonio Iannelli and has also received financial support by a Bourse French Tech Emergence by BpiFrance. Based on the results generated, ExAdEx-Innov has recently initiated a 3-year PhD program co-funded by ANRT, Agence Nationale de la Recherche et de la Technologie (CIFRE Thesis project) aimed at developing applications of ExAdEx technology for the pharmaceutical industry.
