Metabolomics—the small molecule chemical footprint of biological processes—is poised to take its rightful place beside genomics and proteomics as an enabling biotechnique. Scientists involved in the discovery and clinical development of new drugs should attend this free webinar to learn how this technique can advance research.

Key learning points for this webinar:

*Examples of metabolomes and where they fit into the larger biological picture
*Analytical techniques for uncovering and exploiting metabolomics—capabilities and limitations
*Implications of metabolomics for biomedicine, drug discovery, and development
*Metabolomics case studies in diabetes and prostate cancer

Your hosts for this webinar, Chris Beecher, Ph.D. (University of Michigan), and Chris Newgard, Ph.D. (Duke University), Steven Fischer, Ph.D. (Agilent Technologies), bring years of combined experience surrounding metabolomics. They will present specific examples of how metabolomics can be applied to translational medicine, diabetes, and prostate cancer.

A live Q&A session will follow the presentations, offering you a chance to pose questions to our expert panelists.
