POSTPONED: Trends in Metabolomics

26. - 28. April 2022
DECHEMA-House, Frankfurt am Main

+++Due to the unpredictable COVID-19 pandemic situation we decided to postpone the Trends in Metabolomic meeting to autumn 2023.+++


Perspectives in Research, Biotechnology and Medicine

This third metabolomics meeting hosted by the DECHEMA will cover trends ranging from technical developments in analytics, integration of metabolomics into systems biology to biomarker discovery in nutrition and medical research.

During the last decade, metabolomics closed an important gap in the area of post genome research. Determining the information flow from genome to transcriptome, proteome and finally metabolome allows, for the first time, a comprehensive description of living systems. To establish models and data sets for a precise simulation and prediction of physiological properties of cells, however, in silico reconstructions of metabolic pathways and high performance empirical metabolomic studies technologies are essential. The next logical step in metabolomics is to link metabolite pool measurements with metabolic fluxes and gene regulation, to fully cover the dynamics of living systems. Beside the causal analysis of living systems, metabolomics is ideally suited to search for novel biomarkers in disease detection or in monitoring the success of pharmacological intervention. Further aspects of metabolomics range from biotechnology to environmental sensing to food quality applications.

Pre-meetig for young scientists on career perspectives in academia and industry

In the afternoon of 25 April, a young scientists' workshop on career perspectives will precede the conference. PhD students and post-docs can briefly present their research and discuss problems with scientists or get in touch with industry representatives. The afternoon will close with an informal get-together.
