Conference announcement

Metabolism meets function 2018 unraveling the role of metabolism in shaping cancer biology

Wednesday, 20 June 2018
Dear Colleagues,
Please find in attachment the poster announcing the meeting “METABOLISM MEETS FUNCTION” that will be held in Bari next July 20th. 
The main focus of the meeting is the metabolic reprogramming in cancer biology, but I believe that it can be of interest for researchers in different fields as well.
Attendance is free, but registration is required.
