John W. Newman will present a talk titled “Type 2 diabetes associated changes in the plasma non-esterified fatty acids, oxylipins and endocannabinoids in BMI-matched African American women” as part of the Department of Nutritional Sciences’ on-going speaker series. Please note: this talk will begin at 1:00pm.
Newman is an associate adjunct professor in the Department of Nutrition at the University of California, Davis. Newman’s research program explores the interactions of dietary lipids, lipid transport and metabolism as they pertain to obesity and complications of obesity, including chronic inflammation and cardiovascular disease. The research explores whether or not the fine tuning of an individuals’ dietary lipid intake can result in improvements in body weight and general health beyond those recommended to the general population by the U.S. Dietary Guidelines.
