About the Metabolic Network
Cambridge Metabolic Network, is one of several Strategic Research Initiatives and Networks funded by the University of Cambridge to build on areas of existing research strength by bringing together a critical mass of expertise from across the Schools and beyond. The four key aims of this approach are to:
- address large-scale inter-disciplinary research challenges
- strengthen research collaborations and knowledge transfer across disciplines
- increase research capacity and profile by providing a platform for large-scale funding applications, recruitment and international research partnerships
- enhance our ability to influence national and international research, policy and funding agendas.
The Metabolic Network is governed by a Steering Committee chaired by Professor Sir Stephen O’Rahilly, which includes representatives from across the spectrum of research at the University of Cambridge and key partner organisations. The Network is coordinated by Angela Lumsdon (aml95 at medschl.cam.ac.uk).
Joining the Cambridge Metabolic Network is free and is open to Cambridge-based researchers, at any level of their career, with an interest in research relating to metabolism. The online researcher directory allows people to search for network members with interests or expertise in particular areas. We encourage everyone based in Cambridge and with an interest in metabolism to join us at Network events and are always open to new ideas from our members.
