School of Biomedical Sciences Research Committee presents

Metabolism: Systems to Cells Symposium

This symposium will showcase different aspects of metabolism research ongoing around Melbourne. The invited speakers will cover topics including human metabolic diseases, gut microbiome and immunity, metabolic reprogramming of cancer and immune cells, mitochondrial dysfunction, and trans-omics approaches to map the metabolic pathways of pathogens and mammals. The symposium will also feature several “How to measure metabolism” information sessions, highlighting the different technologies and platforms available at the University of Melbourne for measuring metabolism. This is a great opportunity to learn more about metabolism, how to measure it, and network with other researchers.

Registration is free for all research staff and students and includes morning tea and lunch.
