The British Society for Immunology’s London Immunology Group is pleased to present ‘Immune cell metabolism in health and disease‘ taking place on Wednesday 30 May 2018 at Imperial College London, South Kensington Campus, 14.00 – 18.00pm.
Immunometabolism is an emerging field that investigates how the metabolic processes of immune cells affect their roles in disease. Interest in this field is gaining momentum due to the realisation that changes in how cells utilise energy underlies many inflammatory responses, and that manipulating cellular metabolism can beneficially enhance or reduce inflammation. During this half day meeting, we will discuss how the inflammatory environment and cellular metabolism are integrated to regulate immune cell function. It is anticipated this meeting will be of broad interest to researchers working in the fields of immunology and/or metabolism and those interested in therapeutic approaches which target metabolic processes.
