We are holding the fifth OMH Annual Symposium on Friday 1 July at the Medical Sciences Teaching Centre, South Parks Road.

Are you a postdoc, RA, fellow or student? If you are, we’d like to hear about your research at the symposium so send us your abstract! We’ll select up to 5 for short (10 minute) talks at the symposium. Your abstract can describe research on any aspect of ‘metabolism and health’ whether new work or work which you’ve already presented elsewhere.

We will select abstracts for talks that are of interest to the OMH community and fit well in the overall programme.

The abstract submission deadline is Friday 10 June 2022.

Abstracts should be emailed to
