- Social evening  
- Covid-19 regulations

Following our successful meeting in 2018, we are thrilled to announce the second edition of the Prague Symposium on Cancer Metabolism, an international event organized by CLIP – Childhood Leukemia Investigation Prague at the Second Faculty of Medicine, Charles University. We aim to gather scientists from the research field of cellular and cancer metabolism.
We believe that this unique event will be appreciated by the research community, will create opportunities for scientists, clinicians, students and others to embrace the new topic and will set up a suitable environment for networking and establishing new collaborations. You can expect invited speakers from the field of cancer metabolism from the Czech Republic and abroad. The participants will be encouraged to submit abstracts and will be given the opportunity to present their research in the form of oral presentation or poster. 
The symposium will be held under the aegis of the Second Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and Czech Society for Analytical Cytometry.

We are looking forward to seeing you all.

On behalf of the organization committee,
Júlia Starková
