This Abcam sponsored meeting seeks to bring together researchers working in the fields of stem cells and metabolism for a 2 day intensive meeting to highlight the ways in which these two fields are rapidly converging.  The meeting will be organized into sessions that will cover basic metabolic processes, fundamental aspects of stem cell biology, as well as aging and diseases of aging.  The aim of the meeting is to engender discussions on how metabolic changes within stem cells can influence maintenance, proliferation, survival and the onset of differentiation, as well as how metabolic pathways can alter local and systemic environments, which ultimately impact stem cell behavior and tissue homeostasis.  


With this meeting we will build a bridge between stem cell biology and metabolism - two key pillars of modern biology.

Meeting Poster

Our aims:

  • Encourage numerous discussions in a relaxed atmosphere. In particular, to initiate discussions about metabolism as a regulator of stem cells and tissue homeostasis.
  • Provide a unique opportunity for students and post-docs to participate and present their own data
  • Inspire new collaborations and investigations within a new field of research
