2015 RC-SIRM Symposium and Workshop

Current RC-SIRM Symposium and Workshop schedule is at http://symposium.cesb.uky.edu .

Overall Description

The University of Kentucky’s NIH-funded Resource Center for Stable Isotope-Resolved Metabolomics (RC-SIRM) presents its one day Metabolomics Symposium on July 26, followed by a 12-day hands-on Workshop, July 27 through August 7, 2015.
Attendees of the Workshop will gain working knowledge in the application of SIRM to fundamental biochemistry research in the life sciences and bench-to-bedside translational research.


  • ALL EVENTS will occur in the Bio Pharmacy Complex at 789 S. Limestone St. on the campus of the University of Kentucky

Meet and Greet Session

All registered attendees are invited to participate in a pre-event "Meet and Greet" to take place July 25 at 6pm featuring heavy hors d'oeurvres in the Lobby/Atrium of the Bio Pharmacy Complex at 789 S. Limestone Street.

Symposium - Stable Isotope-Resolved Metabolomics: from bench to bedside

The one-day symposium on July 26 will feature presentations and a poster session from leaders in the stable isotope-resolved metabolomics (SIRM) field as well as researchers from around the world who are successfully using this technique to further their individual studies in a wide range of research.

  • Registration for the Symposium will open at 8:00 am in the Lobby/Atrium of the Bio Pharmacy Complex.

Invited Speakers use stable isotope labeling to investigate metabolic changes in many physiological systems and advancing diagnosis and treatment of many clinical conditions such as brain and cardiac disorders, and cancer.

    • The registration deadline for the July 26th Symposium is July 20th. The cost of the One-Day Symposium is $30. This includes coffee breaks, lunch and dinner as well as the Meet and Greet on July 25th.
    • Some scholarships are available to offset travel costs for students and post-doctoral fellows whose poster abstracts demonstrate excellence in the science of SIRM.
    • NOTE: Attendance at the one-day Symposium is STRONGLY encouraged if you are attending the 12 day Workshop.

Workshop - Stable Isotope-Resolved Metabolomics: Experimental design, methods, and data analysis

The 12-day workshop is appropriate for graduate students, technicians, post-docs, and faculty who wish to integrate stable isotope-enabled studies of metabolism into their experimental design.Attendees of the Workshop will gain working knowledge in the application of SIRM to fundamental biochemistry research in the life sciences and bench-to-bedside translational research.

The Workshop will feature demonstrations and hands-on wet lab and dry lab practice including:
  • Stable isotope tracer-based biological experiments
  • Cell and tissue processing, polar and non-polar metabolite extraction, and preparation for MS and NMR analysis
  • Data acquisition with the Center’s Mass and NMR Spectrometers
  • Large-scale analysis of MS and NMR data for metabolites and their stable isotope labeling patterns

  • Application deadline for the Workshop is July 13, 2015.
    • The 12-day Workshop registration fee is $3750. This fee includes the Meet and Greet, the one-day Symposium, 12-day workshop, on-campus lodging and breakfast and lunch each day. Attendees are responsible for their own travel arrangements and costs.
    • Some scholarships are available to offset travel costs for students and post-doctoral fellows whose poster abstracts demonstrate excellence in the science of SIRM.
    • NOTE: Attendance at the one-day Symposium is STRONGLY encouraged if you are attending the 12-day Workshop.

Abstract Submission Guidelines

Abstracts for poster presentations for UK Metabolomics Symposium & Workshop 2014 must be submitted by 11:00 pm (EDT) on July 13, 2015, via the online application form at the bottom of the page. The Program Committee will review abstracts based on their relationship to human metabolism, novelty, significance of findings and clarity.

Format
  • Line 1: Title – maximum 25 words 14 point Bold Arial or Times New Roman. The title should sufficiently represent the content of the abstract. All keywords necessary to identify the subject matter should be included in the title to facilitate electronic retrieval where applicable. Non-standard abbreviations in the title should be avoided. Remainder 11 point Arial or Times.
  • Line 2: Authors-use superscript numbers to refer to affiliations
  • Line 3: Affiliations
  • Line 4: Blank
  • Line 5: Abbreviations used in the body of an abstract should be defined at first use. Complex investigational regimens should be clearly identified.

Each abstract should be sectionalized as follows:
  • Background: A Brief statement indication the purpose(s) of the study
  • Experimental: A Brief description of pertinent experimental procedures used.
  • Results: A clear representation of experimental results.
  • Conclusion: A statement of conclusion.
  • Acknowledgements: e.g. funding
  • Bibliography

The total character count (including the title and list of authors) may not exceed 4000 characters, including spaces; or 1 page, including any graphical content or Table.
