Every day we make choices about the type of food we eat, when we eat and how much we eat. There is increasing scientific evidence that an intricate biological system underpins eating behaviour. Prof Sadaf Farooqi from the Wellcome-MRC Institute of Metabolic Science will discuss key research into the biology of appetite emerging from genetics and neuroscience and the relevance of these findings to understanding eating disorders and obesity.

The talk will be recorded in real-time by a graphic artist and will be followed by a live Q&A session.
