Metabolomics has shown itself to be of great value in the development and testing of therapeutics. The science provides unique insights for the identification of biomarkers for toxicity, disease states, absorption, bioavailability, and many other areas. However, several problems continue to plague the field, including the integration of data from proteomics, genomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics, as well as how best to use the technology for accurate and usable results.
This conference will focus on the application of metabolomics to drug development, clinical outcomes, and ways to improve the use of available technology for more meaningful solutions to metabolomics questions.
