    Clinical Metabolomics Copenhagen 2018 – Conference and Discussions

    The Clinical Metabolomics Copenhagen conference 2018 will bring together world leaders in the field of metabolomics to discuss the current state of the art in the clinical metabolomics field as well as to discuss projections and outlooks for the future. Specifically, the event will span topics ranging from high throughput metabolomics sample handling, novel instrumentation and data acquisition methods, automated data processing, and systems level data analysis in the context of applications to human health. The event will span two days: oral presentations of latest research and future trends on the first day and in depth workshops focused on specific topics that will provide attendees with actionable insight on the second day. Many opportunities will be provided for attendees and speakers to interact and discussion in order to foster new and fruitful collaborations.
