ImmunoMetNet

An ImmunoMetabolism symposium building a Network between immunology and metabolism research and medicine.

The ImmunoMetNet symposium and workshops are postponed.

The (provisional) new date for ImmunoMetNet is November 13th, 2020. Make sure to mark this in your agenda.

Please send us an e-mail if you are PhD, postdoc or PI working on immunometabolism and wanting to share your recent research.

To provide you your weekly shot of immunometabolism, we now organized a weekly Online Immunometabolism Seminar in April and May 2020. All seminars are available for future online watching via the links below. Follow @immunometnet and @immunometlab on Twitter for updates ecents.

The field of immunometabolism provides fascinating insights into the role of metabolic rewiring in regulating both innate and adaptive immune response. This “novel” mode of immune control can no longer be ignored.
With all exciting research being published the last years, we started organizing an annual meeting in 2019, allowing experts from the immunometabolism and related research fields in and around the Netherlands to gather.

This event is aimed to share knowledge and improve collaborations that will maintain our position as global leaders in the future. 

Therefore, we invite you to the 2nd annual ImmunoMetNet symposium on May 13-14, 2020 in the auditorium of the O|2 building at VUmc in Amsterdam.
 
On Wednesday May 13th, both national and international experts will present their latest work, while selected junior researchers will get a chance to present their work as a poster or pitch.

On Thursday May 14th, a master class will be organized to encourage local researchers to interact with some our invited speakers. Moreover, Agilent will provide a Seahorse metabolic flux analysis workshop.

Registrations are free but mandatory and strictly limited so make sure to subscribe in time.
