3rd MetNet International Annual Meeting 2017 - Cellular organelle dysfunction at the origin of metabolic diseases

Sala Prat de la Riba, Institut d'Estudis Catalans. Carrer del Carme, 47 | Barcelona

Despite having reached epidemic proportions, the Molecular and Cellular mechanisms involved in the onset and pathophysiology of diabetes and other metabolic diseases remain poorly understood. In this meeting, researchers will discuss new discoveries on the relevant role that functional alterations of cellular organelles, such as mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum and autophagosomes, has on the development and progression of diabetes, obesity and their comorbidities.

  • With the participation of Dr. Francesc Villarroya, member of the Institut de Recerca Sant Joan de Déu (IRSJD) and the Institut de Biomedicina de la Universitat de Barcelona (IBUB) with the paper "Autophagy in brown adipose tissue".


  • Josep Jiménez-Chillarón, coordinators of the group "Childhood diabetes" - Institut de Recerca Sant Joan de Déu (IRSJD)
  • Josep Antoni Villena Delgado (VHIR)
  • David Sánchez-Infantes Sánchez (IGTP)
