Bioscience Lecture: Energy Management for Metabolic Homeostasis

Energy Management for Metabolic Homeostasis: Key roles for metabolic master switch AMPK and the NAD+ biosynthesis system

Energy sensing systems are present in all cells of our body. They are important for transducing information on the energetic status of the cell to downstream effector pathways to ensure appropriate adaptation in response to metabolic stress. These energy sensing systems are intricately regulated by various signaling molecules in the form of nutrients and nucleotides.

Professor Kei Sakamoto and Associate Professor Jonas T. Treebak will present their work on understanding the roles of the AMP-activated protein kinase and the NAD+ biosynthesis system for management of cellular metabolic homeostasis, and how this may have implications for overall metabolic health of organisms, including humans.

Date: 19 May 2022
Time: 16:00 – 17:30
Venue: Novo Nordisk Foundation, Tuborg Havnevej 19, 2900 Hellerup

What is Copenhagen Bioscience Lectures?

The Copenhagen Bioscience Lectures is a series of open lectures for all researchers and others interested in bioscience, biotechnology and health. Every 4 weeks, on Thursday evenings, you are invited for lectures on themes with a general interest for the Novo Nordisk Foundation Research Centers and bioscience researchers in general. Often there will be a cross-disciplinary focus.

Will it be possible to attend physically and virtually?

This will be a hybrid lecture with the possibility of attending both virtually and physically. Please note that we have a limited capacity for how many we allow to participate physically, and seats are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
