Due to COVID-19, we are sorry to announce that we have to postpone this event to a later date.

Metabolomics is a fast-growing area in modern biological and medical sciences. To keep up with the technological development and the frontier research, we are organizing a National Metabolomics Workshop and Symposium at University of Florida in early May, 2020. One day and a half will be a hands-on workshop to teach students and postdocs the art and science of metabolomics and mass spectrometry. Immediately following the workshop, we will hold a symposium with talks from world leaders and from students. The topics include single-cell metabolomics, imaging metabolomics, and disease biomarker discovery. Confirmed speakers include Sarah M. Assmann, Anna Block, Nancy Denslow, Bryndan P Durham, Craig Dufresne, Timothy J Garrett, and Boone Prentice.

Wed., May 6 – Thu., 7, 2020:
“Hands-on” workshop to teach students and postdocs the art and science of metabolomics. Students will received hands-on training in method development, instrument operation and data analysis in different areas of targeted metabolomics, untargeted metabolomics/lipidomics as well as imaging mass spectrometry. There will be a $200 registration fee to cover the costs of food and supplies. The number of workshop participants will be limited (first come first served).  Registration for the workshop  will require a one-page written statement.  Refer to the registration page for more information. First preference for the workshop will be given to students and then to postdocs. If you belong to the NSF-defined minority groups, please indicate if you would like to be considered for financial aid to defray the cost of the workshop fee, travel and lodging. Refer to the financial aid page for more information. For schedule details, see: workshop schedule.

Thu., May 7 – Fri., 8, 2020:
Symposium with presentations from invited speakers and contributed talks. The invited speakers are world leaders in the field. The symposium is a venue for scientists to interact and present the research they have been doing that utilizes different metabolomics technologies. A vendor show and poster session will also be included. Registration Fee: complementary.

Location:  The workshop and symposium will take place at the University of Florida Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnological Research (ICBR) and the Genetics Institute (UFGI) (see travel information).
