Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Symposium

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. The Metabolomics Core's annual symposium presents translational science investigators, KL2 and other K-award scholars, and research fellows new to the metabolomics field with opportunities to explore the latest information on metabolomics and network with colleagues and world-recognized experts in the field. The symposium explores:

  • 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 metabolomics tools and biomarkers in clinical research

Discussion topics

Specific topics for discussion 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 Core and Metabolomics Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Core facilities (optional tour)


Attendees are invited to display a poster. Awards for excellence will be given to first place ($300), second place ($200) and third place ($100).
