Metabolomics Conference

Friday, March 27, 2015 from 8 am – 6 pm

Main Auditorium at the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine

Organized by Mo Jain

This conference will bring together nationally and internationally renowned scientists with those from across the San Diego Torrey Pines Mesa who are focused on the study of small molecule metabolites and metabolic biochemistry. This meeting will include investigators with interest in technical mass spectrometry, analytical chemistry and the biological applications of these emerging tools.

No Show Policy

While we do not charge a fee to attend this event, these programs would not be sustainable and available to all wanting to attend, unless all registrants abide by the 48 hour cancellation notice policy. A no-show will also limit your ability to book our events in the future. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.



Free parking at the Sanford Consortium will be provided for registered attendees. There is also additional free parking near the Torrey Pines Gliderport, which is within walking distance. The UCSD Shuttle Route has two drop off locations within walking distance to the Sanford Consortium.


Many thanks to our generous sponsors
