London Metabolism Club - Summer Reception 2019

We are pleased to invite you to the 4th meeting of the London Metabolism Club (LMC), a cross-London network for promoting basic and applied research on cellular metabolism in health and disease. We aim to increase collaboration amongst different academic groups and discuss the most recent advances in metabolic research.

London Metabolism Club

This meeting is a joint event with the UCL Food, Metabolism and Society Domain

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, 10th July from 17:00-20:00 in the Gavin De Beer Lecture Theatre, UCL Anatomy Building, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6XA.

Our speakers at this evening's event will be:

Prof Jon Whitehead (University of Lincoln) - Research: to identify novel strategies to reduce cardiometabolic diseases and mechanisms that govern metabolic and cardiovascular homeostasis. These processes often become defective in obesity resulting in the development of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Dr Olivier Pardo (Imperial) - Research on the underlying mechanisms for both resistance to therapy and metastasis in lung cancer. In particular, the role of different members of the S6 kinase family.

There are 3 slots available for Early Career Researcher Talks. If you would like to speak at the event, please contact Elizabeth Shephard (e.shephard@ucl.ac.uk).

Early Career Researcher Talk, format: Five minutes and two slides.
