Pathways to Prevention Workshop: Methods for Evaluating Natural Experiments in Obesity (Day 2)
Obesity is a major contributor to serious health conditions in children and adults. The prevalence of obesity in the United States and globally has grown rapidly in the last three decades; thus, there is a pressing need to help people achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Obesity is commonly defined as having a body mass index (BMI) greater than or equal to 30. In 2014, more than one-third (37.7%) of U.S. adults (Flegal, 2016 ) and 17% of U.S. children and young adults under the age of 20 (Ogden, 2016 ) met this definition, accounting for about 55% of the total U.S. population.

Group 1 innate lymphoid cells in metabolic disease
Immunology Interest Group Seminar Series Innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) are the most recently identified arm of the innate immune system that function to protect epithelial barriers against pathogens and maintain tissue homeostasis. Although ILCs can also promote pathology at mucosal sites such as the gut or lung, it remains unknown whether aberrant activation of tissue-resident ILCs can contribute to disease in non-barrier tissues. Here, we identify a subset of long-term adipose-resident ILC1 that are dependent on the transcription factors Nfil3 and T-bet, but phenotypically and functionally distinct from circulating mature...

The epigenetic clock, biological age, and chronic diseases
NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series It has been a long standing goal to develop molecular biomarkers of biological age. Recent studies demonstrate that powerful epigenetic biomarkers of aging can be defined based on DNA methylation levels. For example, the epigenetic clock (PMID: 24138928) is a multivariate age estimation method that applies to sorted cell types (CD4T cells or neurons), complex tissues, and organs and even prenatal brain samples. The epigenetic clock is an attractive biomarker of aging because a) it applies to most human and chimpanzee tissues, b) its accurate measurement of chronologi...

Director's Seminar Series Branching morphogenesis is a fundamental attribute of many organs. As examples of highly informative model systems, we have focused our studies on two major branching networks, the vascular and nervous systems, which share several anatomical and functional characteristics, and are often patterned similarly in peripheral tissues. Combining high-resolution whole-mount imaging, advanced genetic perturbations, and in vitro organ culture techniques, we are elucidating, at molecular level, how sensory nerves controls vascular branching morphogenesis and how sympathetic nerves are guided by neighboring ...

Reinforcement Pathology and Obesity: Leadfoot and Worn Brakes
BSSR Lecture Obesity is due in part to excessive motivation to eat, and inadequate ability to delay gratification. Food is a strong reinforcer as those high in food reinforcement consume more food, and food reinforcement is cross-sectionally and prospectively related to obesity. The inability to delay gratification is also cross-sectionally and prospectively related to obesity. Excessive motivation to eat and the inability to delay gratification interact, such that those who find food most reinforcing, and are unable to delay gratification, eat the most food and benefit the least from obesity treatment programs.
