Chaired the webinar was Prof. Alta Schutte (Australia), Member of the VinFuture Prize Pre-Screening Committee. Distinguished Speaker of the webinar was Prof. Jens Juul Holst (Denmark), Laureate of the 2023 VinFuture Special Prize for Innovators with Outstanding Achievements in Emerging Fields.

At the webinar, the speakers discussed new applications of Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists in advanced obesity medications. These medications not only help individuals achieve their weight loss goals more rapidly but also reduce the incidence of side effects, such as nausea and stomach pain. Beyond the scientific evaluations, the speakers also addressed the current status of drug dissemination and obesity treatment both globally and in Vietnam.
