All events for UK RC-SIRM's metabolomics symposium and workshop will be hosted in the Lee T. Todd Building on UK's campus.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 25, 2018) – The University of Kentucky's Resource Center for Stable Isotope-Resolved Metabolomics (RC-SIRM) will host a one-day symposium on July 30 and a 12-day, hands-on workshop July 23-Aug. 3, 2018. 

The RC-SIRM is funded by the National Institutes of Health and is one of just six NIH Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Cores supported by the NIH Common Fund.



The one-day symposium will feature presentations from leaders in the stable isotope-resolved metabolomics (SIRM) field as well as researchers from around the world who are successfully using this technique to further their studies in a wide range of biomedical research including cancer, the immune system and diabetes.

There will also be a poster session to showcase participants’ research. Abstracts for poster presentations must submitted by 11 p.m. EDT on July 23, 2018, as a Word document to Alicia Colliver at Registration for the symposium is free.



The hands-on workshop is limited to 20 participants and is appropriate for researchers who wish to integrate stable isotope tracer-enabled studies of metabolism into their experimental design. Attendees of the workshop will gain working knowledge in the application of SIRM to fundamental biochemistry research in the life sciences and bench-to-bedside translational research.

Registration for the workshop includes the one-day symposium, and those wishing to attend the workshop are encouraged to submit poster abstracts that feature research including (or with plans to include) stable isotope-resolved metabolomics. 

The 12-day workshop fee, which covers the one-day symposium and includes on-campus accommodations, is $3,750. This fee includes breakfast and lunch each day.
