Metabolism Joint Lab Meeting

Life Science Building (LSB) Room 202

Thursdays 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM

Meetings feature research presentations by graduate students, post-docs, surgeons, physicians, and investigators from the ECDOI. It is an excellent opportunity to learn about various topics related to metabolism, bioenergetics, membranes, diabetes, bariatric surgery, public health and many other areas. Presentations consist of new data, grant ideas, journal articles, and open questions central to diabetes and obesity research. The setting is informal and interactive, consisting of an open discussion throughout. This allows for extended discussion of key ideas, often fostering collaborations which are fundamental to the success of the ECDOI.

Meetings are open to all who are interested. You can find the full upcoming schedule below. Check back each periodically for updates. We look forward to seeing you there.
