2023 Metabolomics Workshop July 31-August 4 
Bond Life Sciences Center

Registration is now open for our annual, in-person, hands-on Metabolomics Workshop.

Learn how to measure and process metabolic profiles of your samples using high resolution chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry in this five-day workshop. This will include hands-on sample preparation, derivatization, data acquisition and data analysis. The workshop will take place Monday through Friday in the Bond Life Sciences Center. On Friday, we will invite participants to present their current or proposed metabolomics research. More details.

The workshop's cost is $500 for University of Missouri participants, $650 for non-MU academic institution participants, and $1,300 for industrial participants. Fees include costs for three samples supplied by the MU Metabolomics Center. Users can bring their own additional samples at additional costs.

Hosted by Drs. Zhentian Lei, Barbara Sumner and Lloyd W. Sumner.
