Giles Yeo

Giles Yeo is a geneticist with over 20 years’ experience dedicated to researching obesity and the brain control of food intake. He took part in pioneering research that uncovered key pathways in how the brain controls food intake. His current research focuses on understanding how these pathways differ from person to person, and the influence of genetics in our relationship with food and eating habits.

Giles will present his book, Gene Eating: The Science of Obesity and the Truth About Diets, which is hailed as an 'anti diet' book, and gets more in-depth into the science of weight, obesity and diet.

I’ll go on writing, of course, but in shorter forms: poems, stories, possibly a novella or two. Brevity is an undervalued quality and the novella an underused form – a genre that allows for development while avoiding the ‘bagginess’ that Henry James complained of. ‘The blessed nouvelle,’ he called it.
