Metabolism Day 2019

 

The purpose of Metabolism Day is to bring together researchers within the field of metabolism to discuss science. During the day, eight invited speakers will present current insights into metabolic diseases and energy control. The day will consist of talks and poster presentations, and will end with a buffet dinner and poster prizes. All researchers with an interest in metabolic research are welcome to attend the event.
