We invite you to participate in the 14th International Conference on Brain Energy Metabolism (ICBEM) entitled, "Energy substrates and microbiome govern brain bioenergetics and cognitive function with aging". The conference will be held at the Sea Pines Resort, Hilton Head, South Carolina, USA, on October 19-22, 2021.

This conference brings together a select group of leading researchers, clinicians, young scientists, and students interested in brain energy metabolism. Lectures and discussions will cover latest developments in research related to neuronal energetics, emerging roles for glycogen in higher brain functions, impact of dietary intervention on aging, memory, and Alzheimer's disease, roles of the microbiome in gut-brain signaling, astrocyte-neuron interactions related to cognition and memory, novel roles for mitochondria and their metabolites, and metabolic neuroimaging in aging and neurodegeneration.
