Description: The new millennium has seen a resurgence in our appreciation of metabolism as a central discipline in our understanding of human health and disease. Although the pathways necessary for ATP production and synthesis of macromolecules were elucidated decades ago, their role in determining cell fate or function has been uncovered only recently. The discovery that oncogenes and tumour suppressors reprogram nutrient uptake and metabolism in malignant cells has re-energized the field of cancer metabolism and more broadly stimulated a second “golden age” of disease-oriented research in biochemistry.
The conference aims to bring together researchers interested in connecting metabolism to cancer, inflammatory diseases, stem cells and aging in both academia and the biotech/pharma industries. The organisers have put together a strong programme, with a size and format designed to stimulate extensive crosstalk among experts and non-experts in this complex but rapidly accelerating field.
