Welcome to Forethought India One-on-One Courses. Our program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their chosen profession. Our instructor for this course is Researcher Alexander Pomberger at University of Cambridge


The course, "Body's Burning Furnace: Metabolism and Energy Balance," offers a comprehensive exploration of the intricate mechanisms governing the body's energy metabolism. Across multiple lectures, this course delves into the fundamental principles and advanced concepts, providing a holistic understanding of how the body processes energy, regulates metabolism, and maintains balance. Students will grasp the basics of energy expenditure, the role of various nutrients, enzymes, and hormones in metabolic pathways, and the influence of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors on metabolism. Moreover, the course will cover emerging research, discussing the implications of metabolism in health, disease, and personalized nutrition. With topics ranging from cellular metabolism to real-life applications and future trends, learners will gain a thorough grasp of the complexities and significance of metabolism and its impact on overall health and well-being.


At the end of the program, students will receive a certificate & performance letter by the eductor indicating that they have completed the program and acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in their chosen profession.

Body's Burning Furnace: Metabolism and Energy Balance, by Alexander Pomberger

  • I am a chemist&chemical engineer with a strong interdisciplinary interest in artificial intelligence/machine learning and research commercialization. During my PhD I work at the intersection of synthetic organic chemistry, lab automation via robotics and machine learning-based optimization in order to help tomorrow’s chemist to accelerate their workflows. I am application oriented, aiming to combine novel academic innovations with industrial challenges to finally present a solution ready for use in industry.
