Professor, Institute of Pharmaceutical Science, King's
College London, UK
Cristina Legido-Quigley is an Associate Professor in King’s College London in the Institute of Pharmaceutical Science, Life Sciences and Medicine. She is a group leader in clinical biomarkers and a lecturer of analytical chemistry. She studied chemistry as a mature student at King's College London, she trained in Smith Kline Beecham on turbulent flow HPLC, and then did an MSci using single-crystal X-ray diffraction. In 2004, she received a PhD by working on micro LC-MS at GSK and Imperial College London. At the University of Pavia, she was a Fellow studying molecule interactions. After this, she joined as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Imperial College in the Department of Medicine. She moved back to King’s College London in 2006 to pursue her interest in finding clinical biomarkers of brain and liver diseases, toxicity and healthy aging.

EMBO Practical Course on
Metabolomics Bioinformatics for Life Scientists
We will have lively and interactive discussion throughout the course in addition to the hands-on data analysis and processing. We encourage you to bring your data, problems you might have with a particular data set or study for group discussion. You will be asked to present your work and participate in the discussions from day one.
Who is this course aimed at: This course is aimed at PhD students, post-docs and researchers with at least two or three year’s experience in the field of metabolomics who are seeking to improve their skills in metabolomics data analysis.

Data Analysis for Metabolic
This 3.5-day course aims to provide an overview of
data analysis for metabolic phenotyping studies, using
data acquired from both liquid chromatography - mass
spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy.
The course does not assume any experience of coding
or statistical analysis.

Clinical & Pharmaceutical
Solutions through Analysis
Make plans to attend the 2nd Annual Metabolomics
Symposium on Clinical & Pharmaceutical Solutions
through Analysis (CPSA Metabolomics 2016). This unique
event is highly interactive and dedicated to the needs
of the clinic. The program features updated
perspectives and experiences on clinical and
pharmaceutical analysis. Imagination and stimulating
discussion are central to each CPSA Metabolomics
session and event.

The Australian & New Zealand
Metabolomics Conference (ANZMET 2016)
Its aim is to promote collaboration, innovation, and community-building in metabolomics across private and government sectors by open engagement of all researchers and institutions throughout Australia and New Zealand. The conference is actively supported by the Australia & New Zealand Metabolomics Network (ANZMN), in conjunction with the Metabolomics Society and Metabolomics Australia. Several keynote speakers will present at the conference, including Professor David Wishart amongst others.

4th Workshop on Holistic Analytical
Methods for Systems Biology Studies
We expect again high level presentations and an open, friendly atmosphere. We plan tutorial sessions on protocols, tips and tricks, live demonstration of software, and training session for small number of young participants with hands on PC.
The first day is devoted to fundamentals/methods/protocols, the second day to health/life sciences and the last day to food/plant/nutrition.
Looking forward to seeing you in the historic port city of Thessaloniki.
