Dear Colleagues and Friends,
I am excited to announce that 9th Metabolic Pathway Analysis (MPA) International Conference will take place on July 24-27, 2023 in Seoul, South Korea!
On behalf of the MPA committee, I would like to invite you to participate in the 9th MPA and disseminate to your colleagues who may be interested in this noteworthy event.
MPA is a leading meeting for the scientific community analyzing topological structure-function relationships of metabolic networks to study fundamentals of biology and biotechnological applications. MPA 2023 is the ninth in the biennial series, with main focus on the frontiers of theoretical and computational approaches to decode biological principles behind metabolic networks, and enable biosystems design towards industrial applications related to health, food, energy, and environment. Please refer to our website for the most up-to-date information (https://mpa2023.skku.edu/).
Furthermore, MPA attendance has historically been around 80-120 participants. This close-interaction conference format facilitates learning and communication by integrating researchers at all stages of their careers including established professors, junior faculty members, post-doctoral research scientists and graduate students. Active interactions can be expected as all participants stay in the same facilities, dine together and socialize after scheduled events.
Notably, this will be the first MPA conference in Asia. Therefore, I would also like to welcome you to experience rich local culture in Seoul, the iconic and dynamic city of Asia. Particularly, you will be able to experience South Korea’s vibrant cultural legacy which offers a delightful combination of tradition and modernity through the Seoul city tour which is also included in our program.
Looking forward to seeing you at MPA 2023!
