BioCity Symposium 2024

33rd BioCity Symposium: Unleashing the Power of Metabolism
29-30 August 2024
Mauno Koivisto Centre, BioCity, Turku, Finland


The 33rd BioCity Symposium will cover metabolism at many levels, from cellular to organismal. Particular focus will be on the interplay of metabolism with other physiological systems such as immune system, gut microbiome, and how such interplay may lead to disease. Some of the Symposium themes include immunometabolism, cancer metabolism, neurometabolism, mechanisms of energy balance, molecular nutrition, and metabolic imprinting.

See you next year!
