We are delighted to invite you to the 1st Iberian Seminar on NMR Metabolomics in Clinical Research, which will be held in Aveiro, Portugal, on 11th September 2019, at the University of Aveiro. This meeting aims at sharing and discussing recent developments in NMR metabolomics applied to different areas of clinical research, covering both technological advances and the investigation of specific diseases, such as cancer, metabolic syndrome or neurological disorders.
The scientific program comprises 8 lectures from invited speakers who are internationally recognized experts in NMR metabolomics. They will share state-of-the-art scientific results and address practical problems commonly encountered in metabolomics. Hence, we believe that the program will be of interest for both scientists already working in the field and those wishing to initiate their activity in NMR metabolomics. Coffee and lunch breaks will be excellent opportunities for networking, exchanging ideas and establishing new collaborations.
Don't miss your chance to join us in this 1-day Seminar – register before 14th July 2019! Registration is free of charge but mandatory.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Aveiro in September 2019.
