In March of last year, we were excited to meet nearly 200 of you for the first Dutch Translational Metabolism Conference in Lunteren. Unfortunately, as for much of 2020, things did not go according to plan. We had to cancel the event, hoping to postpone it to this year. However, we now realize we were still too optimistic for the planning of in person meetings.
However, the response we received to our initiative demonstrated to us that this is a community worth preserving and continuing to cultivate, even while physical meetings are impossible. Therefore, we have decided to convert our original program into an online seminar series to be presented throughout 2021. Each seminar will be approximately one hour. We are delighted to have five, excellent international keynote speakers who are willing to participate in what promises to be an exciting series of lectures. In line with our initial aim of the TM meeting, these lectures will be complemented by short talks from members of our community.
Lectures will take place (with one exception) on the first Thursday of each month of 2021, from 16:00-17:00. We are currently working on planning our full schedule and will distribute this as soon as possible.
