Metabolomics Mini -symposium
This mini-symposium will present advances in state-of-the-art analytical development, sample preparation, data analysis and key applications for both global and targeted metabolomics applications.
What is Metabolomics?
Metabolomics research investigates the complex mixture of metabolites in any sample type and is the newest omics-research field with several applications in biomedical sciences. The main potency of metabolomics is the close relation of metabolites to the phenotypes of living organisms and provide information on biochemical processes on a molecular level. This parallel analysis of metabolites holds a huge opportunity to uncover fundamental insights linked to disease development. High quality sample handling, analysis techniques and data analysis are required to identify biomedical relevant metabolic alterations.
This symposium aims to cover the following areas:
1. Data analysis
2. Applications in metabolomics
3. Sample preparation
4. Separation/mass spectrometry
5. Validation of metabolomics data
6. Biomarker discovery
The Section of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis at the Swedish Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences is responsible for the scientific part of the symposium.
Who should attend?
This symposium will be of interest to people working with research on metabolomics at all levels in the Academia, Industry and Government authorities.
Mogens Johannsen, Aarhus University, Denmark;
Steffen Neumann, Leipniz Institute of Plant Biochemistry, Halle, Germany;
Ian Wilson, Imperial College London, United Kingdom.
The Scientific Committee welcomes you to submit an abstract to the Metabolomics in biomedical sciences Symposium 2019. Accepted abstracts will be selected for oral or poster presentation, please, state your preference. Deadline for abstract submission: 12th of December, 2018.
Venue and location
The Mini-symposium will take place in Uppsala on March 5th, 2018.
The symposium will start with participant registration from about 9.00 on Tuesday March 5 and will end at 17.00. Possibilities to participate in an informal dinner for a lower fee will be offered.
