9th Annual Canadian Neurometabolic Meeting


The Canadian Neurometabolic meeting, a satellite of the Canadian Association for Neuroscience, is a unique event that brings together scientists studying CNS controls of energy balance, neural metabolism, the impact of metabolism on behavior, and the interaction between metabolism and brain disorders.

This meeting provides a valuable platform for trainees to share their latest findings and network.

In addition to trainee oral and poster presentations, this 1-day meeting features the speakers below.

She is also an adjunct Professor at Yale University, Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology.

    Dr. Diano moved to Yale University from Italy in 1994 to pursue her interest in metabolism regulation. She received her PhD in Physiology in 1999 from the University of Naples “Federico II” in Italy for the studies conducted at Yale University, combining her expertise in neuroendocrinology and mitochondria biology to study brain regulation of energy and glucose metabolism.

    She became faculty at Yale University in 2000 and then moved to Columbia University Irving Medical Center to the direct the Institute of Human Nutrition in 2020.

    Her studies of the fundamental principles of metabolism regulation have been nationally and internationally recognized. She has been featured in the Women in Metabolism ( The “Rosies” of Cell Metabolism), was awarded the 2015 Novo Nordisk Foundation Laureate Award (declined) and was the recipient of the Helmholtz Diabetes Award in 2018.
