"MoMaDC mini-symposium: "Monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells and Metabolism” 

The intracellular metabolism in monocytes, macrophages and dendritic cells (DCs) appears crucial for the function of these critical controllers of innate and adaptive immunity. They undergo profound metabolic reprogramming in response to environmental cues, such as hypoxia or nutrient alterations, but also upon triggering by danger signals and cytokines. Therefore, metabolic alterations in monocytes, macrophages and DCs appear crucial to maintain immune homeostasis and metabolic dysregulation could lead to disease pathology. 

In this mini-symposium, we aim to reach investigators, including PhD and MSc students, from different departments at Erasmus MC as well as other academic institutions, who are interested in learning and discussing the state-of-the-art in this field. Opinion leaders, including Thomas Weichhart (Vienna), Sophie Janssens (Ghent) and Jan Van den Bossche (Amsterdam) will share their latest insights with us.

Related to this mini-symposium there will be a possibility for young investigators (PhD students, early-career postdocs and MSc students) to join a masterclass with the keynote speakers on Friday morning November 29th. 

Participation in the mini-symposium and/or the masterclass is free of charge, but please sign up via this website to ensure your place.”
