Scientist Presents at Nobel Symposium

Published October 2006

Randy Seeley, PhD, was one of 29 scientists asked to present at the recently concluded 134th Nobel Symposium in Gothenburg, Sweden. Established by the Nobel Foundation in 1965, these symposia are designed to highlight areas of science where “breakthroughs are occurring or deal with other topics of primary cultural or social significance.”

The symposium focused on the adipocyte (fat cell), and Seeley, professor of psychiatry and associate director of UC’s Obesity Research Center at the Genome Research Institute, presented on a naturally occurring hormone— GM-CSF—that stimulates the immune system. Seeley and his colleagues have shown that GM-CSF has a significant role in the control of food intake and body weight.
