The Metabolic Physiology Meeting 2023

Extended! Early Bird Registration $795 ends on February 3, 2023

With Support from Sable Systems International

MAY 1-4, 2023

The Metabolic Physiology Meeting 2023 brings together trailblazers in metabolic physiology research from around the globe, featuring speakers from Australia, Europe, Canada, and the United States. It’s the first edition of a yearly scientific meeting hosted by Phillip White and the White-McGarrah Lab with the generous support of our partners at Sable Systems International.

This in-person meeting is the continuation of the Virtual Seminar Series “Metabolic Physiology in Isolation #METPHYS2020” launched at the beginning of the first global COVID19 shutdown. In keeping with the virtual series, the live meeting will cover a broad range of topics including molecular mechanisms governing metabolic homeostasis, nutrient sensing, metabolic flux, cancer metabolism and immunometabolism, and provide a home for discourse and networking across the many distinct domains of metabolic physiology research.



Each year, the Metabolic Physiology Meeting will be capped with the presentation of “The Sable Award for Outstanding Contributions to the field of Metabolic Physiology” which will be accompanied by an award lecture and honorarium for the recipient. Join us in May to discover who will be the inaugural recipient of The Sable!


David James has made numerous major contributions to our understanding of the mechanisms regulating systemic metabolism. These include discovery of the insulin regulated glucose transporter, (GLUT4) and molecular dissection of the intracellular trafficking pathways that regulate its translocation to the cell surface. He also led the development and application of methodologies for studying in vivo metabolism in small animals. He currently holds the Leonard P Ullmann Chair in Molecular Systems Biology and is the Domain Leader for Biology at the Charles Perkins Centre, Sydney University. Recent awards include the Glaxo Wellcome Medal for Medical Research and the Kellion Medal for outstanding contributions to Diabetes research.
