The Lausanne Integrative Metabolism and Nutrition Alliance, LIMNA, is a joint research initiative created by the Faculty of Biology and Medicine of the University of Lausanne (FBM-UNIL), the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL), and the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV). It aims to promote research and education on metabolism, nutrition, aging and all associated diseases, such as obesity, diabetes or cancer, in Lausanne area.
With this initiative, we want to create synergies between teams that work on different research subjects that have metabolism as the common keyword. We also aim to promote the translation of fundamental to clinical research and encourage the collaboration between laboratories of these three institutions. LIMNA also offers a limited number of travel grants to students/postdocs within LIMNA network (More information).
The next LIMNA symposium will be held on June 1st 2017, at the SwissTech Convention Center of EPFL, Lausanne.
This symposium will focus on all aspects of metabolism and will bring together Swiss scientists who have interests in metabolism, nutrition and aging as well as all related diseases.
