Under the leadership of Dr. Mark Failla, faculty emeritus, The Ohio State University’s Foods for Health Discovery Theme is partnering with the Metabolomics Society and the scientific journal, Metabolites, to host its inaugural Conference on Food and Nutritional Metabolomics in conjunction with the 14th Annual Ohio Mass Spectrometry Symposium on May 17-18, 2017. Academic and industrial researchers will present findings, share information, and spark new collaborations in the rapidly advancing fields of metabolomics and mass spectrometry.

Conference keynote speakers include Dr. Gary Patti of Washington University in St. Louis and Dr. Robert Gerszten of Harvard University. The conference also includes invited speakers Dr. Rafael Bruschweiler, Dr. Devin Peterson, and Dr. Ewy Mathé, all from Ohio State.

Oral and poster presentations also will cover: 

  • Metabolomics technology as a tool to determine dietary impact on metabolic phenotypes as related to health
  • Food chemistry
  • Food quality and flavor
  • Proteomics
  • Nucleic acids
  • Bioinformatics
  • Recent advances in mass spectrometric instrumentation and analyses
