Online Workshop: Single Cell Metabolomics

The Precision Medicine Task Group of the Metabolomics Society in partnership with Metabolomics Association of North America (MANA) and other organizations and interest groups is organizing a virtual workshop on Single Cell Metabolomics, to be held on Friday, February 26, 2021 4:00 – 7:00 pm CET (10:00 am – 1:00 pm EST). Dr. Jennifer Kirwan, head of the BIH Core Facility Metabolomics, is one of the organizers.

Omics at single cell resolution has expanded very rapidly, most obviously in genomics/transcriptomics. However, this approach lacks direct analysis of function, such as cellular metabolism. Most tissues are fundamentally heterogeneous at the cellular level, and heterogeneity is a hallmark of several pathologies including cancer.

The workshop will comprise invited talks and a general open discussion forum.

AREAS OF INTEREST INCLUDE:

  • Intrinsic technical problems and current status
  • Coverage
  • Imaging based methods (MS, microdissection, optical, other)
