​​Training in Metabolomics

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 ​ 


Online Metabolomics Training and Education

A variety of metabolomics training and education resources are now available from members of the Metabolomics program consortium online at the Metabolomics Workbench.

Training media includes Tutorials, Videocasts, Online Courses, and Workshop Materials that span a general metabolomics introduction to advanced metabolomics techniques and technologies.
