After watching this webinar, participants will:
- Bone marrow adipose tissue (BMAT) is a major adipose subtype that is developmentally and functionally distinct from other classes of adipose tissue.
- BMAT can influence metabolic homeostasis, haematopoiesis and skeletal remodelling, both in normal physiology and in disease settings.
- BMAT increases or decreases in diverse clinical contexts, including ageing, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease. Current research is now aiming to establish if BMAT directly influences pathogenesis of these diverse disease
