Metabolomics is a rapidly growing field that has the potential to advance our understanding of human diseases and how individuals respond to therapy. Below are the training programs supported by the NIH Metabolomics program. More information is also available at: http://www.metabolomicsworkbench.org/training/index.html
This R25 grant program supports the development of innovative courses or workshops to educate students and investigators who wish to receive training in the field of metabolomics. The ultimate goal of these programs is to prepare investigators to advance the use of metabolomics in translational research and to support highly interdisciplinary teams that are conducting metabolomic studies.
It is critical to have highly trained individuals who understand the field of metabolomics and can work and communicate with clinicians and other health professionals to perform, analyze and interpret the data obtained from metabolomic studies. This NIH Mentored Research Scientist Development Award provides salary and research support for postdoctoral and clinical fellows or new investigators to pursue intensive research training in the field of metabolomics under the guidance of an experienced mentor who has an established research record in metabolomics.
Training at the RCMRCs aims to increase the national capacity for utilizing metabolomics in biomedical research. To facilitate the biological and clinical application of metabolomics, technology service cores, pilot/feasibility projects, training activities, and outreach activities will be supported.
