The Folate, Vitamin B12, and One-Carbon Metabolism Conference

August 14–19, 2022 
Asheville, NC


August 14-19, 2022

Launched in 1986, this FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) explores the most recent basic and applied research observations in folate, vitamin B12, and 1-carbon metabolism and their roles in health and disease.

This conference brings together basic and clinical investigators who are pursuing new advances in the field of one-carbon metabolism. The meeting offers an informal venue to present and discuss research advances and foster new national and international collaborative projects. The conference is designed to encourage and support junior investigators/trainees, women, and minority scientists to ensure this field of research remains vigorous in the coming decade, with a diverse cohort of high-quality scientists.

The conference encompasses a broad exploration of the most recent basic and applied research observations in folate, vitamin B12, and 1-carbon metabolism, and aims to accelerate the translation of fundamental advances into new clinical advances through the interactions of basic and clinical researchers.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
  • 1-carbon nutrients and the microbiome
  • Hereditary disorders of 1-carbon metabolism
  • 1-carbon metabolism, 1-carbon nutrients, and chronic disease
  • Advances in basic aspects of 1-carbon metabolism
  • Workshop on updating the DRIs for 1-carbon nutrients
  • 1-carbon nutrients and cancer
  • Excess folate: a controversy in evolution
  • 1-carbon nutrients in maternal and child health
  • Revisiting methionine dependence

The conference covers ten sessions, two abstract sessions, and two “Meet the Expert” roundtable discussions for trainees and junior faculty to receive career and scientific advice. A satellite session will offer attendees the opportunity to discuss the advances and guidelines in the diagnosis and management of pernicious anemia.
