33rd BioCity Symposium: Unleashing the Power of Metabolism

On-site event
Mauno Koivisto Conference Centre, Turku, Finland


Save the Date, BioCity Symposium takes place again the last week of August!

Registration opens this week, stay tuned!


The Symposium this year 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.
