Metabolomics in Molecular Medicine – from idea to data interpretation

September 30, 2024 @ 08:00 October 2, 2024 @ 17:00 CEST

A jointly organized workshop by the Swedish Metabolomics Centre (SMC) and FIMM’s Metabolomics Unit – University of Helsinki providing an introduction to different aspects of metabolomics, from experimental design to data analysis. The programme consists of a public symposium on the first day and practical elements for workshop participants on days 2-3. Workshop participants are also expected to attend the symposium on the first day.

Metabolomics measures small molecules commonly known as metabolites that all together comprise a metabolome of a biological system. Since metabolome is a reflection of physiological status, metabolomics helps us to understand molecular mechanisms such as drug responses and to find new indicators for diseases.

This workshop provides an introduction to mass spectrometry-based metabolomics with a special focus on its applications in molecular medicine. The workshop starts with a mini-symposium where the experts in the field discuss the recent advancements and applications in metabolomics research in life sciences. The following two days of practical training will cover the metabolomics workflow from the principles of experimental design, sample preparation, theory of chromatographic separation and mass spectrometry to data acquisition, pre-processing, analysis and interpretation.
