5th workshop on analytical metabolomics
Event May 13 - May 17, 2019
Aristotle University Research Dissemination Centre (http://kedea.rc.auth.gr/)
The 5th Workshop on Analytical Metabolomics is a leading workshop where the main focus of discussion will be the potential and benefits of applying metabolomics and foodomics research. The workshop will provide a rich forum for fundamentals and applications of analytical metabolomics and mass spectrometry. This is an important meeting to attend to learn the newest cutting-edge analytical technologies for metabolic profiling in liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC–MS), gas chromatography (GC)–MS, and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, with applications to biomarker discovery in cardiovascular disease (CVD), physical exercise and activity, neonate health, and other conditions. This year the focus is on food authenticity and geographical origin. Emphasis will be given to informatics, chemometrics, and validation, with the latest real-life applications from pioneers in the field of multivariate analysis (MVA) as a statistical tool in biomarker discovery and workflows. The workshop is organized as a three-day hands-on course (13–15 May at Aristotle University Interdisciplinary Research Centre) that will accommodate up to 12 researchers on a first-come, first-served basis, and will provide exposure to technology, live interaction, and experimental training in small groups through tutorial sessions to promote in-depth understanding of theory and practice. A mini-conference will follow at the Aristotle University Research Dissemination Centre (http://kedea.rc.auth.gr/) from 16–17 May. Developments in analytical methods and data treatment strategies and tools will be illustrated. Data treatment software will be shown in live sessions.
