Enrichment: MMOC & UM NORC Symposium

The NORC supports the annual Metabolomics and Obesity Symposium that was started in 2006 by the Michigan Metabolomics and Obesity Center (MMOC). With over 160 attendees and 40 posters in 2012, the Symposium provides a forum for intellectual exchange on topics related to obesity, nutrition and metabolomics among established investigators, junior faculty, students, and other researchers at the University and surrounding area. The MMOC and MNORC Symposium features a full day of invited speakers with a lively poster session during a healthy lunch providing time for discussion and exploration of new collaborations. Speakers include a combination of researchers of international stature from outside of the University of Michigan and junior faculty or senior faculty new to the University.
