Metabolism Workshop

Primary tabs

The goal of the Metabolism Workshop is to connect people at Georgia Tech, Emory University, and other local institutions with overlapping interests with the hopes of making a more interactive metabolism-related community, identifying opportunities for those who may not realize that they would benefit from integrating metabolism into their work, and pooling our expertise to pursue bigger problems and grander challenges in biology.

We will be hosting three external speakers for keynote presentations, to provide depth in their respective fields of expertise and give attendees a breadth of appreciation for what types of research, methods, and projects are out there. These presentations will be complemented by local speakers giving shorter presentations to foster collaborative and interactive future activities.
