Metabolic (dys)function is a key factor in many of the world’s modern diseases. The Netherlands is home to a great many leaders in the field of metabolic research, yet there is currently no annual national meeting allowing all these experts from different disciplines to gather. Such an event would be highly valuable to share knowledge and develop the collaborations that will maintain the Netherlands’ position as a global leader into the future.
Therefore, we cordially invite you to join the first annual Dutch Translational Metabolism Conference, to be held at Congrescentrum De Werelt in Lunteren on March 10-11, 2020.
The goal of this meeting is to bring together and facilitate interaction between all metabolic experts in the Netherlands, both junior and senior, who study metabolism with the ultimate aim to prevent and/or treat disease. We focus on translational research, bridging the gap between fundamental research to application in humans and validation at the population-level.
Our primary goals for the meeting are: networking, exchange of ideas and active participation.
The meeting will be divided into several sessions:
(1) Innovative methods for metabolic research (2) Intracellular and molecular metabolism (3) Systemic metabolism and inter-organ communication (4) Lifestyle interventions and circadian biology (5) Human drug intervention studies promoting energy metabolism
These defined sessions are intended to provide some guidance in deciding whether the meeting falls within your scope. Within these sessions, potential topics include but are not limited to metabolism-related diseases (e.g. diabetes, obesity, aging, inborn errors of metabolism) as well as metabolism-targeting interventions (e.g. exercise, nutrition, microbiome).
More information is coming soon. Visit the Translational Metabolism website for the most up-to-date information for registration and more information.
