Immunometabolism: Fundamentals to Prospective New Therapies

The immunometabolism field continues to provide fascinating insights into the role of metabolites in controlling immune effector responses in both host defense and inflammation. Our knowledge of how metabolic reprogramming can directly govern immune cell responses is continuing to grow with new therapeutic possibilities on the horizon. Discussion topics will include:

  • Metabolic control of inflammation
  • Mitochondrial metabolism and cancer immunity
  • Therapeutic targeting of metabolic processes
  • Fundamental targeting of metabolic processes​
  • Scientific organizers​
