We are pleased to announce the convening of the Second International Metabolomics Symposium. This symposium will take place at the Belknap Research Building on the University of Louisville Campus and at the Camberley-Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, March 24-25, 2007.
The first day of this Symposium will consist of a Practical Workshop including talks on Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Mass Spectroscopy, and BioChemoInformatics techniques and culminating in live demonstrations of cutting-edge Lasar Ablation ICP-MS and FT-ICR-MS. The second day will include presentation sessions ranging from Clinical Applications of Isotopomer Metabolomics to Metabolic Flux Modeling. Presentations will consist of invited as well as contributed papers. There will also be poster presentations on both days.
The First Symposium, held in November 5-6, 2005, was very successful and several international collaborations were forged. It is the hope of the organizing committee that this Second Symposium will continue to bring regional awareness to this exciting and emerging area of research while providing technical training and more opportunities for collaboration. At this symposium, we will also introduce the state-of-the-art mass spectrometry facilities operated under the Center for Regulatory and Environmental Analytical Metabolomics (CREAM), bringing these analytical capabilities to the metabolomics research community.
We invite scientists, post-docs and students interested in this area of research to attend this meeting and contribute abstracts, from which the organizing committee will select papers for posters or oral presentations.
A nominal registration fee will be charged to non-students to cover the cost of lunch, which will be served on both days. Participation in the demonstrations will be limited to those who pre-register. Students must pre-register for lunch(es).
Details on the symposium, registration and submission of abstracts are included in the program flyer, which is attached to this announcement along with the registration form. A block of rooms has been reserved at the Camberley-Brown Hotel in downtown Louisville. When making reservations at the Hotel please indicate the “University of Louisville Metabolomics Symposium”. We look forward to seeing you in March!
