The vast burden of non-communicable diseases facing the world today is diet-related. This includes obesity, type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, and a whole host of other related metabolic disorders. Although the prevalence is related to lifestyle, it is clear there are powerful genetic and other biological influences informing susceptibility to these conditions, which are inherently systemic disorders.
Great strides have been made in illuminating the complex pathophysiology of metabolic diseases, in large part due to the development and application of a whole repertoire of so-called ‘omics’ technologies. These include GWAS and genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and lipidomics.
This meeting will gather international leaders in the field to update on the use of these ‘multi-omics’ approaches. It further aims to improve inter-disciplinary knowledge-dissemination between scientists and clinicians working in basic and therapeutic research.
The programme will include short oral presentations selected from abstracts, lightning talks, posters, discussion sessions and networking opportunities for a highly interactive meeting.
