Metabolomics with the Q Exactive

November 19 — 21, 2018

Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK


Limited bursaries are now available for PhD students funded by NERC, which make the registration for this course FREE to these students.

This 3-day course will introduce you to using the Q Exactive mass spectrometer in your metabolomics investigations. The course is aimed at students and researchers with minimal previous experience of applying LC-MS in metabolomics. The course will be led by experts in the field and include lectures, laboratory sessions and computer workshops to provide:

  • An introduction to metabolomics and using the Q Exactive mass spectrometer in your studies
  • Polar and non-polar sample preparation for profiling and targeted studies
  • Data acquisition for profiling and targeted studies
  • Data processing and data analysis
  • Introduction to metabolite identification

The course will finish with a question and answer session with a panel of experts.

Metabolite identification with the Q Exactive and LTQ Orbitrap

November 22 — 23, 2018

Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK


Limited bursaries are now available for PhD students funded by NERC, which make the registration for this course FREE to these students.

This 2-day course will provide a hands-on approach to teach the latest techniques and tools available to perform metabolite identification. We will apply these tools on the Q Exactive and LTQ Orbitrap mass spectrometry family. The course is targeted towards students and researchers who are actively applying metabolomics.

The course will be led by experts in the field and include significant hands-on experience using both the Q Exactive and LTQ Orbitrap instruments to perform:

  • Data dependent acquisition
  • Data independent acquisition
  • MS/MS and MSn data acquisition.

The course will finish with a session on the tips and tricks from the experts and an opportunity to ask questions.

Gordon Research Conference on Metabolomics in Human Health

February 3 — 8, 2019

Ventura, CA USA


Understanding Human Diseases Through Metabolomics: Interactions Among the Genome, Proteome, Gut Microbiome and Nutrition

The first GRC on Metabolomics and Human Health will be held from February 3-8, 2019, in Ventura, CA USA, and will be co-chaired by Professors Rima Kaddurah-Daouk (Duke University) and Matej Oresic (University of Turku). Metabolomics is the comprehensive analysis of the metabolome, which comprises the set of biochemicals present in cells, tissues, and body fluids. The study of metabolism at the global or ‘‘-omics’’ level is a rapidly growing field that will profoundly impact the future of medical practice. At the centre of human metabolomics is the concept that a person’s metabolic state provides a close representation of that individual’s current overall health status. This metabolic phenotype reflects not only what biochemical reactions have been encoded by the genome, but also modulations by diet, environmental factors, and the gut microbiome, among other influences. The metabolic profile thus provides a quantifiable readout of the biochemical state, ranging from normal physiology to diverse pathophysiologies in a manner that is often cannot be revealed by from gene expression analyses alone.

In this Gordon Conference series, we highlight state state-of-the-art metabolomics technologies and their applications to the study of human health and disease. We will cover very recent developments and breakthroughs in the application of metabolomics to provide a deeper understanding of disease mechanisms, disease heterogeneity and disease progression; variation in treatment outcomes and enablement of precision/personalized medicine approaches; connections between the metabolome, proteome and genome and atlases under development; and effects of the exposome, diet and the gut microbiome on the human metabolome in the context of health. We will highlight large consortia initiatives which enable such epidemiological and clinical studies, functional genomics, nutrigenomics, pharmaceutical applications including toxicology studies, systems pharmacology, and environmental exposures effects on health (exposome) in an integrative setting.

Established and early career investigators, coming from academia, industry and regulatory agencies, are enthusiastically invited to assemble and contribute to this ground-breaking debut GRC meeting on Metabolomics in Human Health.

Introduction to Metabolomics Analysis

February 5 — 8, 2019

European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) - Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, CB10 1SD, United Kingdom


This course will provide an introduction to metabolomics data analysis using publicly available software and tools. Participants will become familiar with the current state of experimental design, data standards, analysis and sharing in metabolomics, particularly through using the EMBL-EBI’s MetaboLights repository and PhenoMeNal infrastructure. There will be a practical component, where participants will learn through hands-on tutorials to use some of the tools available for data analysis and data submission. The course will be completed with an interactive session which will build on the weeks learning to discuss how to develop a metabolomics workflow with a clinical case study.
