Satellite 2: 6th Annual Canadian Neurometabolic Meeting

Date: May 13, 2018

Venue: Sheraton Wall Centre Vancouver

The CNS plays a primordial role in regulating whole body energy balance whereas intracellular metabolism is critical for neural signalling, plasticity and behaviour. Studying the interactions between metabolic processes and brain function and the contribution of nutrition, diet and physical activity is of utmost importance for understanding the development of metabolic, neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders.

The 6th Annual Canadian Neurometabolic Club meeting welcomes all scientists interested in brain-metabolism interplay. A major objective of the meeting is to provide a platform for trainees to present their research in the form of a short talk or poster, and to foster interactions and exchange among PIs and trainees

Thanks to our sponsors this meeting is free!
