Much of what we understand about cellular metabolism has come from research by cancer biologists, who have known since the time of Otto Warburg that metabolic alterations go hand in hand with transformation. Building from this knowledge, in more recent years it has come into focus that many different tissues and cell types undergo metabolic changes that directly impact their function and differentiation. As such, correct metabolic re-wiring is beneficial and a requirement for appropriate cellular function, while aberrant metabolic reprogramming can lead to inappropriate function and have implications on a wide variety of disease states. In this meeting we aim to bring together researchers from different areas of biology, that may otherwise have little crossover, but for their common interest in how metabolism impacts cell differentiation and function.
