June 25-26, 2013: Metabolomics Summer Workshop
June 25, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm
June 26, 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Cure Room, 5050 Brehm Tower
Registration Required:

The Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Core (MRC2) will be hosting the first Metabolomics Summer Workshop on June 25-26, 2013. The workshop will help participants develop a basic understanding of the following topics:

  • The technology involved in the separation and quantification of metabolites.
  • The techniques used for specific approaches, i.e., targeted, untargeted, lipids, fluxomics.
  • Considerations for sample collection, preparation, and study design.
  • Statistical and Bioinformatics analysis, including pathway analysis, data integration, visualization, and software demonstrations.

An overall goal of the workshop is to provide the knowledge necessary to integrate metabolomics into individual research. The workshop aims to help participants recognize various choices and considerations that such research involves and to provide them with resources and a network of appropriate specialists for getting help and answers.

Registration is now open, but space is limited:

The Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Core (MRC2) is a fully integrated program that provides researchers nation-wide with the expertise and infrastructure to determine the levels of known and unknown metabolites in cells, tissues and biological fluids. In addition, the MRC2 provides opportunities for training in the technology of metabolomic analysis, statistical analysis and bioinformatic evaluation of metabolite data as well as approaches to incorporation of metabolomics into basic, preclinical, translational and clinical research.

September 27-29, 2013: REGISTRATION OPEN: Metabolomics Consortium's first annual meeting in Ann Arbor, Michigan
Click here to register (invitation only)

NIH's Common Funds Metabolomics Program is pleased to announce that the first annual meeting will be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan September 27-29, 2013 at Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Core (MRC2). The program currently supports a variety of initiatives for increasing national capacity in metabolomics including three "Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Cores" (RCMRC), a "Data Repository and Coordination Center" (DRCC), technology development, education and training grants and several administrative supplements. More information on initiatives can be obtained at . Please save the date and plan on attending. Please note that no inquiries are solicited at this time. More details will be available at a later date, from the CF-Metabolomics Data Repository and Coordination Center's (DRCC) at UCSD. You may also check the DRCC's website, when it soon becomes available. Posted: May 29, 2013
