The Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) has two upcoming webinars that may be of interest to Society for Endocrinology members. Plus, our recent partnership means you can get a 20% discount on RSM membership. Go to our Members' Area to get your discount code.

 

The role of lipidomics in understanding fatty acid metabolic dysregulation in human heart failure

Wednesday 14 April 2021 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm

RSM members: £6.00 - £12.00

Non-members: £10.00 - £20.00

This webinar will illustrate the utility of untargeted and targeted lipidomics to identify dysregulated fatty acid metabolism in and beyond the mitochondria and new signatures of diseases.

Dr Matthieu Ruiz, Associate Professor, Université de Montréal, Department of nutrition, Co-director-Metabolomics Platform, Montreal Heart Institute, Canada, will provide an insightful lecture, followed by a Q&A session.

Mitochondrial substrate flexibility in the heart – The sweet side of metabolism

Wednesday 12 May 2021 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm

RSM members: £6.00 - £12.00

Non-members: £10.00 - £20.00

This webinar will explore and provide an overview of mitochondrial substrate utilization in the healthy and diseased heart. Professor Adam R. Wende, PhD., FAHA, Division of Molecular and Cellular Pathology, The University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA, will examine the impact of altering glucose delivery in either the context of physiologic stress such as exercise versus pathologic conditions, pressure-overload induced heart failure, or diabetic cardiomyopathy. The lecture will include examples of changes in metabolism, protein function, and gene expression. The knowledge gained from this talk will allow better understanding between the impact of changes in systemic metabolism (i.e. diabetes and hyperglycaemia) and heart failure (e.g. hypertrophy, contractile dysfunction, and disrupted cellular signalling).
