Is Brown Adipose Tissue Relevant to Paediatrics?

Gilsanz Vicente

In this presentation, we will highlight areas of progress in pediatric brown adipose tissue (BAT) research over the past decade, including the general acceptance that this tissue is much more prevalent in children than adults and in infants than in children.
