Metabolism Month – An online conference about energy control and metabolism

Metabolism Month brings together researchers within the field of metabolism to discuss the latest science in metabolic diseases and energy control. It is hosted and organised by the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research (CBMR) at the University of Copenhagen.

For Metabolism Month 2021 – which was held on March 2, 9, 16 and 23 – CBMR organised eight internationally-recognised speakers, three poster sessions and an open session with CBMR's PIs. The format was the same for each day: Two speakers with a poster session or debate in between, from 16:00 to 18:00 CET. 

Each day had a different theme, which corresponded to CBMR's four research programs.

The conference attracted over 1,600 registered attendees over the course of the month, drawn from more than 45 countries around the world.
