This two-day event held in early September 2021 was jointly developed through our on-going collaboration with the Danish Diabetes Academy and offered an opportunity to learn from and discuss aspects of childhood obesity with researchers based in Danish and Cambridge institutions.
The course aimed to expand participants’ knowledge on obesity research including physiology, epidemiology and social sciences as well as promote collaboration between experienced and early-stage researchers from Denmark and Cambridge.
56 people took part (including speakers) and we were treated to an excellent range of talks – some pre-recorded and others delivered live, with speakers from both Cambridge and Demark. In addition, we were delighted with the abstracts submitted by PhD students, post-doctoral and early career researcher which were all delivered as short flash talks. It was an excellent opportunity to network with researchers from Denmark and there was good discussion about future developments and events for next year. Huge thanks to all the speakers and participants and also the programme committee.
