Each year brings new surprises to our understanding of human adipose tissue physiology. It is one of the principal organs that responds to bariatric surgery, and its thermogenesis may be used to treat obesity-complications. This symposium will discuss the multiple new features of brown, white, and beige fat and give a more complete picture of its functional and endocrine roles.
