We are excited to invite you to participate in this prestigious event as presenters of abstracts and contributors to scientific discussions.

  • As part of our appreciation for your valuable contributions, accepted abstracts will receive a 50% discount on in-person, all-access registration. However, please note that on-demand-only and one-day-pass registrations will be available at regular prices.
  • Abstracts of exceptional quality will be selected for oral presentation during the meeting. The committee may also consider Late Breaking Abstracts for oral presentation in special cases.

Furthermore, all accepted abstracts from registered participants will be published in the journal "Metabolism," with Dr. Christos S. Mantzoros serving as the Editor-in-Chief.
  • To encourage academic excellence, the top 6 abstracts will receive awards.

Abstract Submission & Topics: Abstracts should focus on clinical or basic science aspects of insulin resistance in fields such as diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. Investigations of pathophysiology and effects on key metabolic centers, such as the beta cell, adipocyte, gut, and brain, are of particular interest. Studies related to inflammation, endothelial or other vascular dysfunction and multi-hormonal aspects of obesity will also be considered. Clinical topics may encompass insulin resistance in relation to obesity, diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, cardiovascular disease, renal disease, gonadal dysfunction, liver disease (NAFLD), malignancy, and sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea.
