Full title: Resistant starch dose dependently reduces adiposity in obesity-prone and obesity-resistant rats

Presenter: Dr Damien Belobrajdic from CSIRO, Adelaide

Dr Damien Belobrajdic completed his PhD at CSIRO Human Nutrition in 2003 and was awarded the ASMR(SA) Holden Young Investigator that year. Since completing his PhD he has worked with Professor Graeme Young at Flinders Medical Centre and Dr Leah Cosgrove at CSIRO P-health flagship.
