Metabolomics and lipidomics are becoming more relevant to many areas of science and across the Cambridge area, different groups are active in this field. In a collaboration between Cambridge Metabolism, the Wellcome-MRC Institute of Metabolic Science, MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit and Babraham Institute, we want to bring together everybody in Cambridge who is working on, or interested in metabolomics and lipidomics. We are organising a series of talks on the methods and approaches in metabolomics and lipidomics, followed by the opportunity to meet and chat more informally over refreshments.
The talks are open to everybody from students, scientists, technicians and technologists. With the enormous breadth of science topics in which metabolomics and lipidomics are used we want to focus the CaMeL talks on the technology, from sample prep, analysis, data processing and data analysis.
Organisers: Dr Albert Koulman (NIHR BRC Metabolomics and Lipidomics facility, IMS-MRL); Professor Mike Murphy (MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit), Dr Sophie Trefely (Babraham Institute)
The first event took place on 17 May 2023 (see programme below) and was attended by over 60 people.
From the metabolomics deserts to a spectral peak oasis: CaMeL talk – Dr Albert Koulman, NIHR BRC Metabolomics and Lipidomics facility, IMS-MRL
Achieving high internal standards – Dr Sophie Trefely, Babraham Institute
Identifying metabolomics biomarkers for objective assessment of dietary intake and disease associations – Chunxiao Li, MRC Epidemiology Unit
The development of a comprehensive LC-MS method for the quantitation of candidate lipid biomarkers for gestational diabetes – Jamila Sullivan-Al-Kadhomiy, Wellcome-MRC Institute of Metabolic Science-Metabolic Research Laboratories
The role of lipid metabolism in T cell ageing – Dr Joy Edwards-Hicks, Department of Medicine
Leveraging integrated imaging approaches to study spatiotemporal changes of the tissue metabolome – Dr Andreas Dannhorn, MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit/AstraZeneca.
Our next event will be on Weds 19 July 2023 followed by the final one of the year on 8 November 2023. We hope to run the session every six months thereafter.
