14.00 - 16.00 Workshop 2B: Mass Spectrometry and  NMR in Metabolomics Chair: Warwick Dunn, University of Birmingham, UK, & Julian Griffin, Medical Research Council Human Nutrition Research, UK Reporting Standards for Metabolite Annotation and Identification Warwick Dunn, University of Birmingham, UK Metabolite Annotation and Identification Applying NMR Spectroscopy Speaker TBC Quantitation of Metabolites Applying NMR Spectroscopy Speaker TBC Quantitation of Metabolites Applying Liquid Chromatography-triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometry Rob Vreeken, Leiden University and Netherlands Metabolomics Centre, The Netherlands MUSCLE – Software for Automated Optimisation of Targeted LC-MS Methods Gregory Genta-Jouve, University of Birmingham, UK These workshops will take the following format: 1. The leaders of the session will give a short 15 minute overview of advances in their area of interest  2. Delegates will be invited to submit a short case study. These will consist of  a five minute presentation of three slides on a problem they either are trying to solve or have solved. Six of these will be selected for presentation.

For further information on how to submit please contact Lotte Kerr at 3. Delegates will be invited to submit questions in advance for consideration during a panel discussion. Should you have any questions please submit these via our Linkedin Page or by emailing Lotte Kerr at  4. Other ideas will be considered. If you have any ideas for these workshops please let us know via our Linkedin Page or Twitter
