AUMC series

Dear immunometabolism aficionados at Amsterdam UMC,

Based on the survey after the annual ImmunoMetNet symposium in May 2022, we believe the time is now for more regular ImmunoMetNet AMS symposia in Amsterdam. With the support of AGEM, we can kick off the ImmunoMetNet AUMC series!

What’s on the planning?

  1. Nienke Goedhart: Decreased mitochondrial metabolism as the driver of T-cell dysfunction in chronic lymphocytic leukemia. (AII/CCA, Eric Eldering & Arnon Kater lab AMC)
  2. Rike Gorki: Sphingomyelins contribute to metaflammation by activation of macrophage TLR4 (ACS, Jan Van den Bossche lab, VUmc)
  3. Iosifina Foskolou: The two enantiomers of 2-hydroxyglutarate differentially regulate cytotoxic T cell function (AII, Sanquin)

  • April 25th, 2023 4-6pm; AMC, room tbd

What’s needed from you?

  • Participation, enthusiasm and input
  • Spread the word!
  • Claim your slot to present via [email protected]

What can you expect?

  • Low-key interactive meetings with immunometabolism-focused presentations by “young” Amsterdam UMC researchers from distinct disciplines across at least 5 Amsterdam UMC research institutes
  • Every 2 months (aiming for every last Tuesday of even months from 4 till 6 pm)
  • Drinks and snacks to fuel ImmunoMet-Networking
  • Sharing expertise, tools and samples across Amsterdam UMC, with immunometabolism as the unifying factor.
