Sciences at the National Cancer Institute, National
Institutes of Health
Krista Zanetti is a Program Officer in the Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program (EGRP), Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health. Dr. Zanetti earned her Ph.D. in Nutrition in 2003 from Cornell University and joined the Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program at the NCI. During the first year of her fellowship, she earned an M.P.H. at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Dr. Zanetti then conducted primary research in the Laboratory of Human Carcinogenesis in the NCI’s Center for Cancer Research from 2004 to 2010. Since joining EGRP in 2010, Dr. Zanetti’s primary focus has been building infrastructure and capacity to support metabolomics in population-based research. Most recently, she spearheaded collaborative efforts to establish the trans-NIH international COnsortium of METabolomics Studies (COMETS) that brought together 25 prospective cohorts and three well-established consortia from the U.S., Europe, Asia, and South America.

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.

4th Annual Workshop on Metabolomics
Women, members of under-represented minority groups, and individuals with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
The metabolome, in distinction to the other –Omics, provides a better assessment of the exposure to the chemicals of life – it is truly intergenomic providing information on “metabolites” coming from ourselves or the model we’re using, the unique, non-human/mammalian compounds we consume as part of our food, compounds generated by the microorganisms that are part of “us”, and other compounds that are in the environments we live in. If ever precision medicine is able to deliver what is claimed it will, it has to include the metabolome context in which genes and proteins are operating.
The themes in this fourth year of the workshop are:
