Future Events > Insulin and exercise signalling for glucose homeostasis and metabolic health

Insulin and exercise signalling for glucose homeostasis and metabolic health

6-8 September 2017

University of Bath



A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting

 

 

It has become very evident that there are multiple-levels of interaction between the insulin signalling pathway leading to stimulation of glucose transport in insulin-target tissues and the signalling events that occur downstream of exercise and dietary inputs. 

The aim of this timely meeting is to generate valuable discussion focused on the multiple pathways leading to stimulation of glucose transport in insulin-target tissues and address the mechanistic biochemical basis for these interactions. 

In addition to talks from academic researchers and the nutrition and pharmaceutical industries, the meeting will also include the 2017 Sir Philip Randle Lecture, awarded to Geoffrey D. Holman, University of Bath, UK, all of which will allow us to show how recent advances in this area of research can lead to new approaches for developing therapies in insulin resistance and associated health problems including obesity, heart disease and increased susceptibility to dementia.
