Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Symposium
Sept. 8-10, 2014
Rochester, Minn.

Mayo Clinic is a leader in the emerging field of metabolomics — the systematic study of the unique chemical fingerprints that specific cellular processes leave behind. This symposium will present translational science investigators, KL2 and other K-award scholars, and research fellows new to the metabolomics field an opportunity to explore the latest information on metabolomics and network with colleagues and world-recognized experts in the field. The symposium will explore:

  • Methods for incorporating metabolomics into research
  • New information and data from Mayo Clinic's Metabolomics Resource Core through lectures by Mayo Clinic and visiting faculty
  • Education on emerging metabolomics methodologies and their application in basic and translational research
  • Data on the use of metabolomic tools and biomarkers in clinical research

Discussion topics

Specific topics for discussion will include:

  • Tissue ceramides
  • Amino acid and metabolites
  • Citric acid flux
  • Muscle mitochondrial functional measurements
  • Systems biology
  • Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy
  • Quantitative analysis
  • Mass spectrometry-based large-scale metabolomics profiles
  • Mayo Clinic's Metabolomics Mass Spectrometry Core and Metabolomics Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Core facilities (optional tour)

Poster session

Attendees are invited to participate in a poster session and reception Sept. 9, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Awards for excellence will be given to first place ($300), second place ($200) and third place ($100).
