3rd Adipocyte-Brain Crosstalk Symposium

NOTICE: Due to the current COVID-19 situation in Germany and other European countries, we decided that all the talks will be held online. Speakers and registered participants will receive further instructions on how to join the symposium in due time.


We are happy to welcome you to the third "Adipocyte-Brain Crosstalk Symposium" in Lübeck, 10-11 March 2022. The Symposium is organized by PhD and MD students of the DFG-funded Research Training Group 1957 "Adipocyte-Brain Crosstalk" and will be held online via Webex and Gather.town.

We invite especially young researchers to present their work at the crossroad between the fields of neuroscience, metabolomics and chronobiolgy. During our symposium international experts will address topics ranging from the central control of energy homeostasis, over the connection between circadian clocks and energy metabolism, to the epigenetic mechanisms contributing to metabolic diseases. The scientific program is completed by talks of young researchers and a poster session followed by a social get-together.

We look forward to welcoming you online.
