Event: New Approaches to Metabolomics Research

Due to expected inclement weather, this event has been postponed.

The Drugs, Biologics, Vaccines and Devices Translational Research Community of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research’s (ICTR) and the Center for Metabolomics Analysis are hosting a symposium Tuesday, March 14 from 9:30 am-12:00 pm in Owens Auditorium at the Koch Cancer Research Building, 1550 Orleans St.  Event check-in and coffee service begin at 9:00am.  All faculty and staff are encouraged to attend.

Keynote speakers include Charles Burant, MD, PhD director of the University of Michigan Nutrition Obesity Research Center (P30) and the Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource core (U24) and Children’s Health Exposure Analytical Resource Untargeted Analysis Core (R24), and Gary Siuzdak, PhD, director of the Scripps Center for Metabolomics and faculty guest at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

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.  To register visit: https://metabolomicsresearchmarch14.eventbrite.com
