Metabolic Interest Group

2021 Metabolic Interest Group (MIGs) Schedule

 

Running since 2009 the Metabolic Interest Group is a collection of labs at UVA that meet monthly to discuss research in progress pertaining to the broad area of metabolism. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 4:00 PM in the Pharmacology library (Room 5023). Two labs present for 30 minutes at each meeting. The intent of this meeting is to provide students, postdocs, and faculty an opportunity to get feedback on current projects.
