Professor Nigel Crowther's inaugural lecture will shed light on obesity in Africa.

He will give an overview of the epidemiology of obesity in Africa and its relationship with other non-communicable diseases. The possible mechanisms by which excess adiposity leads to disease, and the molecular processes involved in the accumulation of lipids within fat cells will also be discussed.
