Our goal is to generate fresh insight into research in the field of metabolism by establishing an inter-disciplinary community of researchers…
Cambridge Metabolism is hosted within the Wellcome-MRC Institute of Metabolic Science, and promotes metabolic research activities and events among the broad academic research community in Cambridge, including members of all six Schools of the University and key regional partner organisations.
Our objectives are to:
- nurture an inter-disciplinary community of researchers
- support the development of new research
- co-ordinate activities in areas of importance to research in metabolism and
- facilitate translation of research to benefit current and future populations.
What current members say
Cambridge Metabolism is a fantastic platform where scientists carrying out metabolic research can meet and share expertise and ideas. I personally enjoy attending the workshops as they offer insights in areas of research that I have not thought about but would increase the impact of my research. I feel that the network is invaluable and offers a fantastic opportunity for networking and scientific discussions between PhD students, early career researchers and group leaders.
The chemical reactions of the body that generate energy and are used for the synthesis of molecules are clearly central to life itself. Disordered metabolism plays a crucial role in a broad range diseases from rare disorders of single genes to conditions as common as obesity and cancer.
