Quality Assurance and Quality Control in Metabolomics course - June 2018


7-8 June 2018 (Thursday - Friday)
Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham

This two-day course will provide a comprehensive overview of the application of quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) in metabolic phenotyping. The course is aimed at students and researchers who are actively working in the field. Experts who have developed the application of QA and QC procedures within the field will lead the course. It will include both theoretical and practical components to:

  • introduce QA and QC in metabolic phenotyping
  • the application of QA and QC in untargeted and targeted studies
  • preparation of QCs and data acquisition
  • data processing and reporting standards.

The course finished with a question and answer session with a panel of experts.


The course is aimed at PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who have been actively applying metabolomics for a minimum of six months. If individuals would like to attend the course but do not have the recommended level of experience please contact the course administrator for advice.

This course is free, including travel and accommodation, for PhD students and selected post-doctoral researchers funded by NERC (subject to availability).
