Houston Workshop Web Banner

Metabolon encourages all researchers in the Houston, TX area to attend a FREE WORKSHOP.

Practical Applications of Metabolomics
Friday, March 6, 2015 from 9:00AM to 2:00PM at Trevisio's Restaurant & Conference Center in downtown Houston.


About the event:
Metabolites reside between the output of genes/transcripts/proteins and the phenotype and have proven utility in unlocking disease complexity. Metabolomics is the science of deriving biological understanding and identifying associated biomarkers of disease through the systematic survey of all metabolites that result from specific cellular processes.

This half-day workshop provides an overview of the current state of metabolomics and how the technology has been applied to solve a variety of problems including:

-  Understanding disease mechanisms
-  Elucidating mechanism-of-action of a drug/ingredient
-  Identifying biomarkers
-  Establishing/supporting product claims
-  Profiling biochemical changes for bioprocess/fermentation optimization

The event will conclude with a panel discussion, during which attendees can ask the presenters specific questions about their research.

There is no cost to attend, and breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Come join this active discussion and learn how metabolomics can reveal key insights for complex diseases to advance R&D.
