Targeting AMPK: Basic Research and Drug Discovery

-- 1st Beijing International Conference

November 5th-7th, 2014

Beijing, China-2nd round

The 1st Beijing International Conference focuses on exciting recent discoveries in the basic research of the regulatory role of AMPK in metabolic and cardiovascular disease, and recent advances in the small molecule compound targeting AMPK for the treatment of these diseases.

The purpose of this conference is to bring scientists and investigators together, who are at the forefront of basic research and drug discovery targeting AMPK, to learn and discuss, thereby fostering communication and collaborations. The young scientists will be also provided opportunities to present researches and exchange ideas with these pioneers.

The conference is organized by Beijing Pharmacology Society and Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences & Peking Union Medical College and sponsored by Acta Pharmaceutica Sinica B (APSB).
