Speakers will address the following topic areas:

  • Resources available on campus: The Metabolomics Program as part of ICTR- supported labs
  • Feasibility, design and costs of projects using metabolomics technologies (including mass spec and NMR- based metabolomics)
  • Metabolic approaches based on specific research projects/questions ranging from simple assays to high-throughput approaches such as global metabolic profiling and stable isotope-13C, 15N-labeled on a wide variety of sample types

Lunch will be provided and attendees will have an opportunity to meet with core leaders and other experts. The event is free.
