Congratulations to Dr Naik for receiving a travel award from the EMBO workshop.
During May 2017, Dr Roshan Naik traveled to Portgal and Spain to present at two conferences.
1. The 24th European Congress on Obesity (ECO)
17th-20th May 2017, Porto, Portugal
Dr Naik presented work in the form of a poster titled ” Metabolic dysfunction in Translocator protein knockout mice: role in inflammation”.
2. EMBO Workshop: Brown adipose tissue meeting
24th -27th May 2017, Sitges, Spain
This workshop consisted of a small group (nearly 100+) of researchers working on basic, translational and clinically oriented work on adipose tissue; it was highly fruitful for networking and receiving important input on our work.
