Cell Symposia: Neurometabolism in health and disease
in partnership with the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology, A*STAR Research Entities, Singapore

April 26–28, 2023 | Singapore

Before travelling to the conference, please familiarise yourself with the Covid-19 requirements for Singapore which Elsevier will be following. The current country guidelines can be found here.

We still request that anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19, or is under any self-quarantine orders does not attend the conference.

Latest News

The nervous system is a master regulator of physiological functions across different organs. The goal of the meeting is to provide an overview across the latest developments on the neural regulation and neural-organ interactions in health and disease spanning a wide range of functions from feeding and metabolism, energy homeostasis, and gut-brain/neuro-immune interactions in model systems and humans. The meeting will provide insights into the neural circuits and mechanisms, as well as genetics and lifestyle (e.g., nutrition) underlying and influencing these functions, and will focus on the latest technological interventions and tools in research.

This Cell Symposium aims to bring together thought leaders within these diverse fields, provide a forum for sharing and disseminating the latest advances, and provide a common ground for cross-disciplinary discussion and collaboration between the fields to understand the role of neural regulation in organismal homeostasis and disease.
