This week-long course will describe from both theoretical and practical point of views, how to carry on an NMR based metabolic profiling project. It will cover study design, sample preparation, NMR spectrometer set up, quality control, data analysis, and metabolite identification.

Each day focuses on one of the aspects of metabolic profiling and it also includes a case study to help you think of pros and cons of potential projects and aspects to consider when applying for funding.

Please note: This course will take place in person on our Hammersmith campus and the number of participants is limited to ensure maximum interaction with lecturers and trainers.
