Metabolomics Symposium

Robert Johnson research builidng

Join us for a day of exploration and sharing about the latest findings in metabolism research.

You will:

• Learn about recent developments in metabolomics from our top health researchers. 

• Get practical information about the application of metabolomics in areas such as nutrition, disease diagnosis and cellular mechanism studies. 

• Tour our facilities and experience some of our research firsthand.

Who should attend: 

Scientists and clinicians who are interested in metabolism, metabolites and metabolomics. 

How metabolomics can help your research: 

Metabolism impacts or is impacted by virtually every cellular process. Altered metabolism is one of the hallmarks for many diseases, including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and Alzheimer's disease. Metabolomics studies have revealed important findings in systems biology and biomarker discovery.

This informative event includes presentations, keynote and a tour of our facilities. 

Note: Registration is limited to 50 participants. The tour is limited to 20 participants.
