Organized by Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz (HHMI/Janelia), Vamsi Mootha (HHMI/Harvard) and Rong Tian (U. Washington), this is the seventh in a series of planning workshops that will serve an important role in shaping Janelia's new 15-lab, 15-year research program in 4D Cellular Physiology.

This workshop will explore outstanding questions and challenges in the broad field of nutrition and metabolism. Metabolism operates at multiple length scales that are interconnected: metabolites, enzymes, metabolons, organelles, cells, organs, organisms, and their environments. Likewise, it is coupled to many processes, including genome regulation, signaling, growth, and development. The range of scales implies that multiple experimental and theoretical approaches are required to achieve a holistic picture of metabolism in action. This workshop will bring together experts working in diverse areas of nutrition and metabolism at different scales - both basic physiology and disease biology, as well as technology - with the goal of understanding how the 4D Cellular Physiology initiative can positively impact this field.

The virtual format will include ~5 hours of short talks and discussion each day, open to the broad scientific community. Presentations by invited speakers will focus on current challenges in the field and exciting new directions that could lead to transformative advances.

This workshop will serve an important role in shaping Janelia’s ongoing research program, providing critical background for a new approach to collaboratively tackle some of the most important problems in modern biomedical research. 

Graduate students, postdocs and other trainees are invited to submit an abstract for consideration for a short talk on your work.

Applications are closed.
