  • Application of Combined 'omics Platforms to Accelerate Biomedical Discovery in Diabesity

    Monday, April 16, 2012 | 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by Hot Topics in Life Sciences and the Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science at the New York Academy of Sciences

    The explosive rise in obesity and attendant diabetes (diabesity), threatens the health of children and adults in Western and developing Asian countries. This symposium focuses on the breakthrough discovery potential of metabolomics. Metabolomics, in concert with high-content data from other 'omics technologies, can reveal the connections between metabolic phenotype and molecular underpinnings of diabesity, identifying new therapeutic targets and developing new and innovative targeted therapies. In addition to a day of outstanding science by academic thought leaders, industry leaders will contribute to a panel discussion on the emerging revolution in bioinformatic platforms that enable multi-omic metabolic pathway analysis. These new platforms are expected to provide a game-changing acceleration of future biomedical discoveries.

    This event will also be broadcast as a webinar.
