Inter-organ Communication in Health and Disease Virtual Symposium

martes, 24 de noviembre de 2020

Bringing together some of the world-leaders in the study of physiology and metabolism, the Genes and Metabolism section at the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences will be hosting a half-day symposium on Inter-Organ Communication in Health and Disease.

Cells, organs and even organisms do not function in isolation, and it has become clear that studying the mechanisms of communication between these entities is crucial for understanding metabolic homeostasis. Our discussion-focussed format will allow us to debate some of the biggest questions in the metabolic regulation of health and disease: from the gut-brain axis and the influence of the microbiome, to the role of metabolites as non-canonical signals, we’ll cover both their physiological importance and the pathological implications when things go wrong.
