"Metabolomics & Lipidomics: From Discovery to Routine Applications"
Presenter: Giuseppe Astarita, Ph.D., Principal Scientist, Waters Corp, Adjunct Professor, Georgetown University.
A number of technological advancements have enhanced our ability to conduct metabolomics and lipidomics experiments. State-of-the-art chromatography, ionization sources, and MS technology combined with powerful informatics solutions provide a comprehensive set of tools to analyze complex mixtures of lipids and polar metabolites in biological samples. In this presentation, I will illustrate current workflows for metabolomics & lipidomics, including untargeted and targeted approaches, for discovery and routine applications.

Special Presentation:
"Exploring the Versatility of Micro-flow Technology – From Peptide Biomarkers to Lipids and Metabolites"
Presenter: Corey D. Broeckling, Ph.D., Associate Director, Proteomics and Metabolomics Facility, Joint Assistant Professor, Colorado State University

Opening New Avenues in Precision Medicine Using Metabolomics as a First-Line Phenotyping Tool

This seminar will discuss key technological innovations that have allowed metabolomics to become a first-line tool for phenotyping individuals and open new avenues in precision health and disease assessment. While genomics has been the focus of precision medicine for the past decade and produced many important insights, a staggeringly complex blueprint for health has emerged. Global metabolomics provides a surrogate to the phenotype that may help illuminate meaningful associations between metabolites, genes and other influences such as the microbiota and bring about unprecedented understanding of human health.
Speaker: John Ryals, Ph.D., Metabolon President & CEO
