There has been an explosion of interest in the study of the metabolome - or metabolomics - over the past decade or so. New high-throughput technologies including mass spectrometry and NMR have helped researchers compile a detailed picture of the thousands of metabolites that make up individual organisms and cell types.
In this special C&EN Web Symposium, two established experts from the world of metabolomics - Gary Patti and Dean Jones - will share some of the latest research advances in the field and the technologies that are facilitating them. The speakers will discuss the physiological significance of metabolomics changes in disease states such as malaria, as well as the objectives of the Global Metabolomic Initiative.
Gary J. Patti PhD is Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Genetics and Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis, and one of the leaders of the Global Metabolomic Initiative. He also teaches metabolomic short courses at the American Society for Mass Spectrometry and Mass Spectrometry Applications, to the Clinical Laboratory meeting.
Dean P. Jones PhD is a Professor of Medicine at Emory University in Atlanta, where he has been on faculty for more than 30 years. He is the director of the Emory Clinical Biomarkers Laboratory, which utilizes NMR and mass spectrometry for clinical metabolomic analyses in human health and disease.
