European workshop on AMPK

The goal of this new meeting is to bring together European teams working on AMPK, to discuss and share latest data resulting from their ongoing research activities. In each session, following one state-of-the-art talk, the floor will be given in priority to young researchers (PhD students or post docs) to present their own projects. The poster session will then allow for deepened discussions with all participants.

Keywords:
- Metabolism, metabolic diseases, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases
- Exercise, cardiac and skeletal muscle
- Cellular and whole-body energy regulation
- Autophagy, cell growth
