Welcome to the London Metabolism Club!

The London Metabolism Club (LMC) provides a platform for promoting basic and applied research on cellular metabolism in health and disease with the specific objectives to:

  • establish a forum for discussing the most recent advances in metabolic research;
  • provide a network for collaborative links among academic groups working in the field of cellular metabolism;
  • stimulate interdisciplinary collaborations and initiatives, and share technical expertise.

We have regular club meetings with two talks by invited speakers, followed by discussion and networking in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.  There are also slots available for Early Career Researcher Talks.  

(Early Career Researcher Talk format: five minutes and two slides.  Early Career Researcher in this context means a current PhD student or someone who received their PhD within the last five years.)

If you would like to nominate a speaker or present your research, please contact us:
