Event Description:

The Canadian Neurometabolic meeting is a unique event that brings together scientists studying CNS controls of energy balance, neural cell metabolism, the impact of metabolism on behavior, and the interaction between metabolism and brain disorders. This meeting provides a valuable platform for research trainees in the field to share their latest findings and network. Our last event gathered over 100 participants coming from 17 labs, 12 research institutes connected to 8 Canadian universities. The 2023 meeting is free and will take place on Sunday, May 28 at the Hotel Bonaventure in Montréal, Québec as a satellite of the Canadian Association for Neuroscience.

In addition to trainee oral and poster presentations, this 1-day meeting will feature:
